He also wrote a note on social media asking for prayers, “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!!
Today, he sat down with his old stomping ground, Good Morning America, and talked more about his fight to get something done. The host explained that for years he has been going to doctors because of stomach pains. They could not figure out what was wrong with him. He insisted that they do an MRI and they did. By insisting they do one, they found a 4-centimeter mass in his kidney. He forcefulness saved his life.
The actor wants us to take charge of our bodies. Who knows our body better than we do? If there is something wrong, insist your doctor do more. Worst case scenario, it is nothing. Best case scenario, you find out something is wrong and you can cure it before it gets any worse. Just like he is he doing.
Mathison is a good guy, so I am praying for him. We all should. May his surgery go smoothly tomorrow and so will his recuperation from it. Hopefully, he will back on his talk show in time to promote his and all the other Hallmark Christmas movies.
UPDATE: Mathison talked about it on Home & Family. He says he will have laparoscopic surgery.
Hopefully, they will get it all and not take his kidney. After the minimally invasive surgery, he will not have to do chemo nor radiation. Mathison said he should be back at work in, at most, two weeks after going under the knife.
To see his announcement, then
