Former One Life to Live alum Eddie Alderson is retuning to the hospital for more cancer treatment – but he’s not letting this news pull him down or kill his spirit in anyway. In fact, the soap opera star shared an inspiring message to his fans, promising everyone that he’s willing to put up a fight and not let his cancer get the best of him.
Eddie was diagnosed with lymphoma late last year. He finished one round of treatment back in April, but unfortunately he’s not at the end of his journey yet. The actor, who used to play Matthew Buchanan on ‘One Life to Live’ told his social media followers in an Instagram post, “I start my stem-cell transplant process today, and will be spending a few weeks in the hospital…this will not be easy, but no worries, I got this. I have one quote in my mind: “Every battle is won before it is fought.” #WarriorMentality#NoSurrender #BringItOn.”
Eddie first revealed his cancer diagnosis to his fans back in November of last year. And while he’s won a few battles, the war isn’t over yet. He’s been updating his followers on his social media accounts about his progress. It’s without a doubt that Eddie has all of his fans, his family and his close friends to rely on during this difficult time.
We wish Eddie nothing but the best along with a speedy recovery. Seeing how far he’s gone so far, there’s no doubt that Eddie’s got this. What’s more, fans can’t wait to see him back on the small screen again.
