Burgess Jenkins (ex-Billy, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) has announced that his wife, Ashlee, is now cancer-free!
After revealing in March that the real reason he left the soap was to be at his wife’s side through her battle, the actor tweeted over the weekend, “Six months ago with grace, faith, humor and unending strength, she put the gloves on and fought. Today, she’s cancer-free.”
Fans and friends were overjoyed by the news, and weren’t shy about sharing the love online!
