Cameron Mathison Reveals He Has Cancer; Feeling “Optimistic” After Diagnosis

Hallmark Channel’s Cameron Mathison has revealed he will undergo surgery this week for kidney cancer.

The host of Home and Family shared his diagnosis on his Instagram page as well on the show. You can read his entire post below the story.

“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, Mathison wrote. ‘It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma… or kidney cancer.’

Mathison said that the cancer “hasn’t spread to any other organs” and feels “extremely lucky” that the cancer was found early. He added that his surgery is scheduled for Thursday at 1 PM PT, and that he “was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with.”

“I announced this on @homeandfamilytv yesterday, and wanted to make sure I posted about it here as well,” Mathison said. “Feeling very grateful and optimistic!!”

All My Children alum Mathison also is host of Entertainment Tonight. He has been a co-host on Home and Family since 2013.

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!! 💪🏼🙏🏼❤️ #thankyou yes
