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.

TONIGHT: All My Children’s Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams Together Again on All-New Episode of ‘Our Kind of People’

The Fox drama, Our Kind of People (9 pm ET/8pm CT), will feature a reunion, of sorts, on tonight’s January 18th episode when Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, All My Children) once again shares screen-time with her former on-screen soap opera love, Darnell Williams (Ex-Jesse, All My Children).

While mum’s the word as to Williams role, we know that Debbi plays Angela’s Aunt Piggy on the series, and in last week’s installment, Piggy went to the police station to turn herself in for the murder of her ex-boyfriend years ago.  However, Darnell’s character could hold the key as to what really went down in the murder.

Debbi spoke to TV Line about acting again with Darnell: “We were shooting the scene when Darnell’s character walks through the door for the first time.  And it was the first time we see this character on the show, and I looked at him and shouted, ‘Jesse!’ The director had to yell cut and everyone fell out laughing. It was hilarious. I knew that wasn’t his name on Our Kind of People but I couldn’t help myself. We worked together for so many years as Angie and Jesse and that’s the first thing that came to my mind.”

For those who have not checked out Our Kind of People, it takes place in the aspirational world of Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard, a historical stronghold where the rich and powerful Black elite have come to play for over 50 years.

In story, strong-willed single mom Angela Vaughn (Ex-AMC star, Yaya Decosta) sets out to reclaim her family’s name and make an impact with her revolutionary hair care line that highlights the innate, natural beauty of Black women, but she soon discovers a dark secret about her own mother’s past that will turn her world upside-down and shake up this community forever. The show is a soapy, thrilling exploration of race and class in America and an unapologetic celebration of Black resilience and achievement.

The series is from writer and executive producer Karin Gist (Star, Grey’s Anatomy) and executive producer Lee Daniels (Empire, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday).

So, will you be watching Debbi and Darnell together on tonight’s Our Kind of People? Comment below.

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.

Now comes word via PEOPLE, that Stause and Jason Oppenheim (Los Angeles real estate firm owner of the Oppenheim Group) have called it quits after five months of dating.

Oppenheim took to his Instagram Story and shared on the break-up: “While Chrishell and I are no longer together, we remain best friends and we will always love and support one another/. She was the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had, and it was the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life. While we have different wants regarding a family, we continue to have the utmost respect for one another. Chrishell is an exceptional human being and loving her and having her in my life is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.”

Just two days ago, Chrishell shared an Instagram video with Oppenheim from the Selling Sunset makeup trailer just as the cast wrapped filming its fifth season.

Previously, Stause was married to This Is Us star Justin Hartley, while Oppenheim used to date another Selling Sunset star and Oppenheim Group employee. Mary Fitzgerald.

So, what do you think of the break-up of Chrishell and Jason? Comment below.
