The New Year seems to be getting off to a great start for several One Life to Live alums. Kristen Alderson (ex-Kiki Jerome, General Hospital; ex-Starr Manning, OLTL) took to social media to share that her brother, Eddie Alderson (ex-Matthew Buchanan, OLTL), and her former on-screen mom, Kassie DePaiva (Eve Donovan, Days of our Lives; ex-Blair Cramer, OLTL), are both fighting strong in their battles with cancer.
"God is so good! Tears of joy yesterday and today w/ great news on @KassieDePaiva & @EddieAlderson," she tweeted. "Couldn't be more grateful! Miracles happen."
Back in November, Eddie shared that he had been diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and would have to undergo chemotherapy. He has kept his spirits up during recovery and recently tweeted, "Thank you all for the continued prayers. PET scan from Monday shows the prayers are working, so keep up the good work, guys!"

He also added, "If you have a loved one, tell them you love them. If you have a friend, tell them you love them. That is all that matters in life. Trust me."

DePaiva, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, hasn't shared any updates on her condition after revealing initial details about her heartbreaking diagnosis back in August of 2016. Here's hoping Kristen's update means she's also on her way to being cancer free!
