Hallmark Channel host and former “All My Children” star Cameron Mathison has been diagnosed with kidney cancer.
“I have a health situation that I want to share with you all🙏🏼 There are many reasons I love social media, staying connected with you all, sharing fun experiences… well this time I’m asking for your help,” the 50-year-old actor wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. “About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they found a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer.”
He stayed positive in his message, saying the tumor had not metastasized.
“The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼,” he said. “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.”
Mathison said he has having surgery on Thursday and is remaining “grateful and optimistic.”
