NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers finds that February 4th, is World Cancer Day, a day in which to spread awareness for the disease. Unfortunately, for Chrishell Stause who played Jordan Ridgeway on Days of Our Lives, Amanda on All My Children, and Bethany Bryant on the Young and the Restless, this awareness came at a tremendous cost.
She posted on her IG, “I just found out today is #worldcancerday eerily on the same day I found out my mom has 1 to 2 months to live from the same lung cancer that took my dad on Easter.” she posted the update along with a picture of a flickering candle to commemorate the day. As we all know, Strause has had a tough year of it. First her Dad dying last spring, and then her much-publicized divorce from former Y&R Actor Justin Hartley (ex Adam), 2019 was not an easy year for Christine and it looks like 2020 isn’t letting up so far.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Raise awareness forWorld Cancer Day
“I can’t make sense of what life is teaching me yet, but my heart is with every person fighting this horrible disease and every person that it robbed a loved one from. #fuckcancer #standuptocancer” Strause concluded in the IG post. Our hearts ache for her, no one chooses this disease, no one chooses a health crisis, no one chooses to lose their family in the worst way possible. What we have to do is to remember to support the survivors, family members, and caregivers of those in need. These are hard battles and so often people lose the fight.
So on this day, we at DSD would like to raise awareness for #WorldCancerDay and say that we will be following this story closely. Our hearts go out to Chrishell, and any and all of our fans who have been touched by this horrible disease. We wish all of you strength, hope, heart, healing and peace in the face of this terrible adversity. Maybe one blessed day we won’t have this silent killer in our midst. In the meantime, we can all pitch in and donate to the Cancer Research Institute to benefit cancer research itself. The American Cancer Society to help cancer patients themselves, and St. Jude’s children’s hospital to help end childhood cancer. May we be victorious.
