Kassie DePaiva (Eve, Days of Our Lives, ex-Blair One Life to Live) revealed on her website  she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, a blood cell cancer, during her time off in July.

DePaiva shared she spent six weeks in a hospital undergoing treatment. Although she has three more months of treatment ahead of her, she stated that the outlook for recovery is good. Even better, she said it was likely she won't need a bone marrow transplant to achieve a cure. 

She credits "prayer warriors, family, and friends that have been extremely supportive and life affirming throughout this."

DePaiva hopes Eve will be back to her trouble-stirring ways in Salem soon. If you'd like to help leukemia organizations, you can visit her website here for details.

The crew here at Daytime Confidential sends their best to DePaiva with hopes for a speedy recovery. Salem just isn't the same without Eve!
