The new year is kicking off with some wonderful news for the Alderson family! Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Starr, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) tweeted, “God is so good! Tears of joy yesterday and today with great news on Kassie DePaiva (Eve, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Blair, OLTL) and Eddie Alderson (Matthew, OLTL). Couldn’t be more grateful! Miracles happen.”

Back in November, Eddie revealed that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and would be starting chemotherapy very soon. As the chemotherapy began, Eddie shared positive updates as he kept his spirits up.
Now, the young man has posted that he is continuing on the road to recovery. “Thank you all for the continued prayers,” he tweeted. “PET scan from Monday shows the prayers are working, so keep up the good work, guys!
“If you have a loved one,” he added, “tell them you love them. If you have a friend, tell them you love them. That is all that matters in life. Trust me.”

DePaiva was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia back in August of 2016. And since she has not shared a detailed update on her own condition, Kristen’s excitement about the great news for both her brother and former on-screen mom will just have to do for now!
Best wishes to both Eddie Alderson and Kassie DePaiva during their battles with cancer, and we hope to see both of them in full remission!
