It may have been a rough year for Kassie DePaiva, after her diagnosis and treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia. But the daytime star, who can currently be seen as Eve on DAYS OF OUR LIVES but is still remembered as ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s Blair and GUIDING LIGHT’S Chelsea, is happy to report some wonderful news!
“So much has happened in my world that it is crazy to pinpoint all the good stuff,” DePaiva wrote in a recent blog post. “I’ll start with continued good news on the health front. My bone marrow biopsies continue to come back clear and blood work normal. Every four months I have to have a bone marrow biopsy, and every six weeks, blood work done as a precaution to make sure I’m still in remission.
“Needless to say, I get anxious prior to lab work,” she continued, “but God continues to keep me in His healing hands. Thank you all for your constant thoughts and prayers of support. I’m forever grateful.”

DePaiva was also thrilled to return to work at DAYS following her treatment and dive back into Eve’s storyline as the character returned to Salem to drop the bombshell that she’d married Deimos shortly before his untimely demise! “She will definitely give Victor and Brady a run for their money and more,” the actress enthused. “Please start watching every day! All eyes are needed to keep these soaps afloat! I love what I do and the fans have all the power. Spread the word, because DAYS is hot and getting hotter!”
In addition, DePaiva also shared another way that fans could help out with a special purchase from jewelry designer Elise Ryan. “My girlfriend has designed a beautiful bracelet that we named ‘BRAVErocks’ to raise awareness and money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society,” she revealed. “They will make a perfect gift of love for the holidays. We can all make a difference and help find a cure for these deadly blood cancers. Also, if you can, please donate blood. You will save lives!” You can check out the beautiful BRAVErocks for Kassie at this link.
