Kassie DePaiva Free Of Cancer And Content
“I was on a chair lift after attending a country event at HM. I feel beneath my arm and think, “That’s strange.” I detected 2 knots. So I had a “Hmmmm” moment. And they didn’t hurt. DePaiva remarked that she knew she didn’t feel ill at all. Kassie DePaiva called and scheduled a visit with her doctor who asked her to visit around July, she continued. She had those small knots and asked if he could squeeze her in. I simply want to confirm that everything is in order. She had to get a biopsy, along with the rest, as you know, is history.
According to the results, Kassie DePaiva had acute leukemia and not breast cancer. But the actress’s health was about to take another unexpected turn. A year later, Kassie DePaiva did have breast cancer. I chuckle and say, “Can you even imagine?” However, after a lumpectomy, everything was found to be in order, and as of right now, I am free of cancer and content. The seasoned soap actor also spoke with Mara Levinsky and Stephanie Sloane, presenters of the Soap Opera Digest podcast, about the difficulties she had dealing with treatment after being diagnosed with leukemia.
