Ferguson, best known for starring on ABC’s hit sitcom Modern Family, posted a picture of himself with a bandage on his right cheek on Instagram Tuesday.
“Thank you to Dr. Bennett & his entire team for taking the cancer out of my face,” Ferguson captioned the picture. “Good luck hiding the stitches tomorrow @modernfamily_makeuphair! #youwannaapieceofme #phantommask #spf75.”
Ferguson has long been a supporter of Stand Up to Cancer, which raises money for groundbreaking research. At a Stand Up to Cancer event last year, Ferguson revealed that his husband, Justin Mikita, is a cancer survivor who had battled it in his early teens.
“He was diagnosed when he was 13 and that’s sort of an age when you don’t really realize what’s going on,” Ferguson said on the red carpet to E! News. “He goes in once a year for his check-up to make sure he’s still cancer free so he’s always reminded of it.”
Ferguson added, “I think it does touch him in a lot of ways. He’s thrilled that I’m here and I’m definitely representing him.”
