Peter also shared a link to a Facebook page about Laura, with the message stating: "Our beautiful 20 year old Laura was diagnosed with Glioblastoma multiforme in October 2018 after a brain scan that showed 6 brain tumours. Laura was in her first term at Kings College London after getting straight A’s in her Alevels last August".
Peter Kay announced in 2017 that he would be cancelling his upcoming tour due to 'unforeseen family circumstances', and he has kept a low profile ever since.
In a statement posted to Twitter, he wrote: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
"This includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments," he continued.
"My sincerest apologies... I'm sure you'll understand that my family must always come first.
"I've always endeavoured to protect my family's privacy from the media. I hope that the media and the public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I'm very sorry."
