“All My Children” star Cameron Mathison revealed over the weekend that he was cancer-free.
Speaking to Extra while attending the American Humane Hero Dog Awards, Mathison, who also co-hosts Hallmark’s “Home & Family,” said that he had surgery three weeks ago to remove a tumor from his kidney. He originally revealed his diagnosis last month.
“I’m feeling really, really well. It’s three weeks out of surgery and I honestly didn’t even think I would be feeling up to coming here,” he said. “The recovery has been great, the surgery went really well, the prognosis is very optimistic.”
Mathison continued: “They removed the tumor on my right kidney and in doing so they removed part of the kidney itself and left the majority of it, and when they did the pathology report and they checked the margins around the tumor, all of that was free and clear of cancer and that led them to believe that all the cancer was out and gone. The cancer has not spread… so I am cancer-free.”
Mathison has co-hosted “Home & Family” since 2013.
From 1997 to 2011, he played the role of Ryan Lavery on “All My Children.”
