Home Celebrity UPDATE “All My Children” Actor Cameron Mathison Says Kidney Cancer Surgery “Went...

FRIDAY 9AM UPDATE: Cameron posted to Instagram this morning: “Feeling loved and supported by my family and friends, including each and everyone of you. I’ve been very overwhelmed and so grateful for all of the supportive comments and prayers. The surgery went very well. The tumor is gone and I even got to keep 80% of my kidney😊 We are all optimistic. Keep you updated.
So grateful for all of you ❤️”

THURSDAY MORNING: Cameron Mathison– former “All My Children” actor and host of “Home and Family” for Hallmark TV– is having surgery this afternoon for a tumor on his kidney. The indefatigable, always upbeat Mathison announced his diagnosis on his show yesterday and posted to Instagram. When Cameron first started appearing on “All My Children” and lived in New York he was a regular at many movie events. We always had terrific talks. He’s remained that nice guy for the last 20 years. Like Mario Lopez, he’s an Energizer bunny, too, working, working, working. There is also no one who looks healthier or more fit, which just goes to show you: cancer does not discriminate. (Also, it’s hard to believe he just turned 50!) Sending the best wishes to him and his family for a speedy and permanent recovery.

Here’s his statement:

“I have a health situation that I want to share with you all🙏🏼 There are many reasons I love social media, staying connected with you all, sharing fun experiences… well this time I’m asking for your help.
About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they found a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs🙏🏼 They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years🙏🏼. I am extremely lucky that we found it early. Thank you to my longtime friend and urologist @jon_giddens who has helped me tremendously through this process.
Vanessa, Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support… as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) 🙏🏼
I announced this on @homeandfamilytv yesterday, and wanted to make sure I posted about it here as well.
Feeling very grateful and optimistic!! 💪🏼🙏🏼❤️
#thankyou yes”
