"It's been a slow, unfolding, my dad's sick, so that's been a process we're going through," Damon told Extra earlier this month. "We'll take any prayers you got, so throw 'em up there."

The Downsizing and Good Will Hunting star has helped raise awareness and funds for cancer research and treatment since his father's diagnosis in 2010.
