Fans were devastated when ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s Eddie Alderson (Matthew) revealed he had been diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, but he and his sister, Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki, GENERAL HOSPITAL; Starr, OLTL) promised to keep everyone updated on his progress.
“Killin’ it!” Kristen shared on Instagram. “Literally.”
In the video she made, Eddie’s first day of chemotherapy is finished, and he smiles into the camera as he declares, “Bye, cancer!” Then he lip synchs along to “I Will Survive” and the two of them sing “Living On a Prayer” together. So perfect!
