Fans and co-workers were crushed when Kassie DePaiva (Eve, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Blair, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Chelsea, GUIDING LIGHT) revealed that she was battling leukemia. And OLTL castmate Patrick Gibbons Jr. shared a heartfelt message for his TV mom wishing her a speedy recovery!
The young actor, who recently caught up with TV uncle Roger Howarth (Franco; Todd, OLTL) on the set of GENERAL HOSPITAL, reached out to the actress who played his adoptive mother on the show, writing, “This is for you to lift your spirits. Love, Patrick.”
Gibbons plays a lovely piece of music on the electric guitar, then declares, “Hi, Kassie. I hope you feel better soon and I miss you”
Gibbons also tweeted, “My TV mom was so nurturing to me at OLTL. My turn to send love and support to this strong lady. Prayers are on the way.”
