DePaiva Comments On Alderson’s Post
DePaiva discovered that she had leukemia a few month’s before Alderson knew he had cancer. She said in a tweet, “Praises to God my dear boy.”
Back in late 2016, Alderson started his battle against cancer. The strong-willed former soap star always reminded himself to never surrender, hence the “No Surrender” tag line.
In September, the actor happily shared that there are no more signs of cancer in his body.
In an Instagram post, he said, “Today is a good day. A damn good day,” he posted on Instagram. “I’ve been quite private and selective about updating the status of my health the last few years. I’ve shared some of the downtimes and some of the good times. Today, I had a scan that showed no active disease in my body.”
He hoped to inspire other people who have cancer to never give up. He said, “I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and look at where I am today. I am fucking proud of this day. I am proud of myself and ALL of the people who are fighting today or have fought.”
Since then, he’s gone through several rounds of chemotherapy and has gone through different surgeries to treat his lymphoma. Fortunately, he had a good support system. His family never left his side including his sister and also a former cast member of “One Life To Live” and “General Hospital,” Kristen Alderson.
