Kassie DePaiva has been diagnosed with leukemia. The beloved 'Days of Our Lives' star shared the heartbreaking announcement to fans and followers on her website.
"I know that I have been quiet lately and I want to let you know what’s been going on in my life," DePaiva wrote. "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."
The veteran soap star will continue treatment for 3 months. She says right now that her prognosis is "good," and that she will likely not need a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kassie DePaiva and her whole family during this difficult time.
