One Day At A Time sitcom star, Broadway veteran, and a recent guest star on The Young and the Restless, Bonnie Franklin, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
In a brief statement issued by her family circulated by CBS, it stated Franklin was being treated for pancreatic cancer and was “continuing her normal schedule during this time.” It went on to say that, “She and her family remain extremely positive and thank everyone for their support and concern.” It concluded with a request that her privacy be respected.
Franklin last aired today on Y&R as Sister Celeste, a modern day nun, and was involved in Victor Newman’s MIA storyline that is playing out now.
Bonnie is best known for playing divorced mom Ann Romano in CBS’s hit comedy One Day at a Time, which ran from 1975-84. She also appeared in TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland last year — reuniting her with her One Day co-star Valerie Bertinelli.
Our thoughts are with Bonnie and her family at this time.
