Erin Molan speaks after her dad’s cancer diagnosis

Aussie media personality Erin Molan has shared an emotional message with fans following her father's shock medical diagnosis.

Liberal senator Jim Molan on Monday announced he would take leave after an "aggressive" form of cancer was detected.

"I will be taking leave from the Senate for further testing to confirm the prognosis and to commence treatment," he said in a statement.

Senator Molan, the father of the TV and radio presenter, said the news came as a shock, but he had "many reasons to be positive".

It prompted an outpouring of well wishes for the family, including "thousands of messages" over the past few days.

"We wish to express heartfelt thanks for the thousands of messages conveying good wishes, thoughts and prayers we have received in the past few days," the post stated.

"Along with Jim, we have been particularly heartened and inspired by those who have shared their own person cancer experiences with us.

"We thank every single person who has reach out. We are overwhelmingly grateful for your kindness."
