Former pastor Joe Simpson, who managed his daughter's careers, was diagnosed with an advanced form of prostate cancer in early October (16) and he's now updating fans on his health.

"At this point, I am spending time with my family," he tells In Touch. "They are my biggest support. The cancer continues to be monitored, and I am doing everything the doctors are telling me to do. I'm looking for a miracle.

Joe had his prostate removed upon diagnosis, adding, "As everyone knows, all it takes is one cell to multiply.

"Right now the outlook is great, but no matter what, I have to monitor this for the rest of my life. Once you have cancer, you have it - but I will get through this."
