Saturday is World Cancer Day, and on this day when all of us can join forces to make a difference in the battle against this disease, but two soap stars shared some personal news and messages that will mean so much to their colleagues and their legions of fans.

First, the beloved Kassie DePaiva (Ex-Blair, OLTL and Eve, DAYS) took to Twitter to share some wonderful news: “Today is #WorldCancerDay and I’m grateful I can say I am cancer free. To all of you who battle cancer…fight on! Trust the journey!”  DePaiva had revealed back in August 2016  on her website that she has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Second, Kristen Alderson, (who played Kassie’s daughter Starr Manning on OLT:, before moving over to GH to eventually become the role of Kiki) shared how proud she was of her brother Eddie Alderson (Ex-Matthew, OLTL) who has been undergoing chemo for Hodgkins Lymphoma via her Instagram account.

On World Cancer Day Kristen expressed: “On November 11th my family and I heard the word no one ever wants to hear. I always had great compassion when I heard that someone was suffering with Cancer, but you truly don’t know the feeling until it hits you or your family. Being with my brother @eddiealderson every step through his journey has been and continues to be the biggest honor. I have learned sooo much. It has been the most terrifying, yet insanely inspiring experience we’ve ever faced. My prayers, love, sympathy, amazement, and awe goes out to anyone that has or has ever had cancer or has a loved one with cancer. We are all in this together.”

Please send your well-wishes to Kassie, and Kristen and Eddie in the comment section below!

Cassie you’ve always been one of my favorites. I am so happy for that you have been able to work your way back to good health. On a personal note you good news means even more to me today. I have been out of commission with some rare, exotic ailment that just popped up a couple of weeks ago. It been emergency to a current hospital stay. Having no tv or iPad (until) yesterday to hear the news let me think a lot. Only thing I want to say on this story (and I’m sure Cassie and Kristin would agree),… Read more »

I am so thankful that Kassie is cancer free. I was surprised to read about Eddie, he is so young. I was 35 when I had kidney cancer and I remember nurses, etc. saying that same thing to me, that I was so young. I guess it is good to remember that cancer can hit you at any age. What a wonderful sister you are, Kristen to your brother! Miss seeing all of you! Am still upset every time I see “The Talk” come on ABC at 2:00 p.m. I just have to turn the tv off! God Bless you… Read more »

My ten year anniversary of being cancer free is less than a month away. I think it was harder on my family then it was on me.

To all who are healing and their families and loved ones, I wish you a speedy and full recovery.

Dear Eddie, Kristen. Eddie I know that you can beat this awful disease. I say that only because I’ve had two different kinds of cancer and with the grace of God I’m hear on this side of the grass. You are many yrs younger than me. I will pray for you . God Bless and i’d love to hear about your progress.

Well wishes are not enough for me. I am going to pray. Dear Lord Jesus we come before your courts with thanksgiving and praise. We lift up Eddie Alderson to you today. We know that your word says the very hairs on his head are numbered and known by you. We also know that you have known him before the foundation of the world. His cancer diagnosis was a shock to him and his family. But you know all things and you made a provision for him and the healing of his mortal physical body by the stripes beaten on… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
