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!”

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, to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose’. Will be praying for God to lead you in this new adventure in your life & that the surgery will go well for you. Mrs. Honson

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.

Dear Cameron and family : I’m a 61 year old guy who started watching all my children back when it first started in 1970 . I was 13 at the time and my Mother would watch A M C every weekday , so if i had the day off from school or i was sick or on school vacation , i’d watch the show with her .
I enjoyed the show so much , when i got older and worked full time , my Mom would call me or i’d call her to find out what happened on the show that day ! Then of course years later VCR’S came out and i would tape every show and watch it when i got home that evening . ( To this day still wonderful memories that i cherish ! )
Every actor / actress was fantastic ! Cameron , you did a great job playing Ryan Lavery , alongside Erica Kane , ( Susan Lucci . ) And Adam Chandler /Stewart Chandler , ( David Canary . )
I’m so glad the MRI caught everything early Cameron , and you eat healthy having a healthy lifestyle , thank God ! I will say a prayer for you and your family at this time , praying everything goes as planned . God will hold your hand through the surgery today .
All of your fans love you and are praying for you at this time , and i hope you know i think of you as one of my friends , Cameron .
God bless , from Ed .

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.
