Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis and Shares Heartfelt Message

Photo: JPI

One of our the best guys we know, Cameron Mathison (co-host, Home & Family and Ex-Ryan Lavery, All My Children), revealed over the last 24 hours that he has been diagnosed with Renal Cell Carcinoma – kidney cancer, but treatment for him will be underway and the prognosis is good.

Cameron first shared the news on Monday’s Home & Family in a special announcement enlightening viewers on his health condition (watch video below) and later took to his Instagram and social media to share more details.   Of note: Mathison’s healthy lifestyle has indeed helped, and shown, that his cancer has not spread.

In addition, Mathison wrote: “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they fd a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” He thanked his doctor and his family, saying, “[wife] Vanessa, [kids] Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼.” He concluded, “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!”

Send positive vibes Cameron’s way as he goes through his medical procedure this week, share your comments below.

My husband also had kidney cancer which did not spread to any other parts and also
did not need Chemo they took out the entire kidney, he had a special genetic test on a sample and it showed doing chemo was
not necessary,on top of that he also had colon cancer, both at the same time. I wish you
all the best and a speedy recovery

I mean it when I say that Cameron is truly one of my favorite Hallmark actors. I was sickened to hear this news. He was right. According to integrative health experts I know, we do, in fact have cancer in our body for 10 years before it manifests. We will be praying for Cameron and his family. Cameron, you have a TON of supporters praying and will have you covered during your surgery, praying for you, the surgeon, and of course, your family. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

I’m a 72year old man. I had my left kidney removed 14 years ago and am doing fine. My diagnosis was the same as yours. No other treatment needed the only downfall is no anti inflammatory drugs,only Tylenol. Live a great life and enjoy your family. I treat myself to an ultrasound every Xmas just to check things out.i I got up one morning with a pain in my left side,they X-rayed and said I had diverticulitis but also had a spot on my kidney, first stage cancer. I believe I was helped out on that one. Take care!

I recently found out that I have a tumor on my right kidney also. Mine was found during a scan of my left kidney (which has a separate issue). Mine has not spread and we are still awaiting one more test result to determine treatment. Best of luck to you and God Bless!

Dear Cameron, I’m nearly 80 years old, have been married for nearly 60 years. Just a little background info on me. You are one of my favorite actors & I try to get all your films when they come out on DVDs. My niece had kidney cancer when she was 6, but has survived all these years, is happily married with 2 children. So, I’ll be praying for you & trust that you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. If you have a personal relationship with Christ, then we know that ‘all things work together for good,… Read more »

My mother suffered from odd symptoms. She would go to the doctor who did medical blood tests which showed a problem but when she returned for a followup blood test, everything was normal. Finally, at age 80, she changed doctors, who did an ultrasound. Showed same cancer which was the size of one’s fist and has metastasized to the frenal artery. She had the right kidney removed, was in the hospital for about 3 days. She lived another 13 years.

You never have to worry when you have Christ on your side. He will never leave you or forsake you. Cameron, you are a fine example for people living in this generation. Being in the limelight can change people for the worst, but you have stood the test of time. Keep on living as Christ would have you live, and you will never regret it. Praying for you on the 12th here in TEXAS.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.

AMC Alum Sarah Michelle Gellar Reflecting on Her Time on Soaps: “Anything I Can Do to Continue the Legacy I’m Very Proud Of”

Daytime fans knew of Sarah Michelle Gellar her way before her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, when she stepped on to the small screen as Erica’s (Susan Lucci) troubled daughter Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My Children. 

Gellar played the role from 1993 to 1995, and made a brief return in 2011 as the show came to its conclusion on ABC. Additionally, Sarah won a Daytime Emmy for her performance in the Outstanding Younger Actress category in 1995.

Sarah has partnered with Lysol for their brand’s Disinfecting Wipes “Buy One, Donate One” program. where now through September 26, whenever a pack of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is purchased, another pack will automatically be donated to an under-resourced school through the Kids In Need Foundation.

The program is aimed to help curb the spread of illness-causing germs in schools this back-to-school season, a total of up to 16 million packs of Lysol Disinfecting Wipes will be donated to Title I schools across the country.

The program is the latest component of Lysol’s HERE for Healthy Schools initiative. Started in 2019 with the mission to help curb the spread of preventable illness and to help kids miss less school so they are able to learn, grow and thrive, HERE for Healthy Schools has provided educational materials for students and Lysol disinfecting supplies for educators and administrators to more than 49,000 schools across the country. This year, HERE for Healthy Schools is focused on helping to protect children, educators and parents as they make their big return to in-person learning in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking with TV Insider on the partnership, Gellar recalled her time on the soaps and how it changed her career and outlook, noting: “it was the training ground for the rest of my career.”

She went on to say: “I made incredible friends at that time and I learned incredible work habits, and soap operas are an intense amount of work, and I’m incredibly grateful for that time and the people that I met.  We live in a world now where my kids don’t even really know what a soap opera is, so anything I can do to continue the legacy I’m very proud of.”

So, do you remember Sarah’s time on AMC? What do you think of her thoughts on her time on the soaps? Comment below.
