On Thursday on her website, Kassie DePaiva revealed some personal news that we are sure was heartbreaking to her Days of our Lives and One Life to Live fans.
Kassie, who had returned to work at DAYS as Eve Donovan for a second go-round, disclosed that she has Acute Myeloid Leukemia and has spent 6 of the last 9 weeks in the hospital. The Daytime Emmy-nominated actress though relates that she will continue treatment for the next 3 months, but that her prognosis is a good one.
In her blog post Kassie shared the following: “I know that I have been quiet lately and I want to let you know what’s been going on in my life. I was asked back to play Eve on Days and had begun my exciting return. During the 3 week July hiatus I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and have spent 6 of the last 9 weeks in the hospital. I will continue treatment over the next 3 months. My prognosis is good, I will not likely need a stem cell/bone marrow transplant, and we expect a complete cure. I consider this just a bump in the road. I have amazing prayer warriors, family, and friends that have been extremely supportive and life affirming throughout this.
I have a strong faith that strengthens me every step of the way. This has been a private matter but with Eve’s return coming soon I felt it was time to let my loving fans know what’s been going on. The Days and OLTL family love runs deep. Although I’m unable to be “camera ready” now… my goal is get back to stirring up trouble in Salem soon. Keep me in you thoughts and prayers.”
