Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan, All My Children) is crediting filming Hallmark flick The Christmas Club for saving his life. Currently in remission from kidney cancer, the Home and Family co-host says the job inspired him to get an MRI when he felt ill.
Mathison told Entertainment Tonight:
It was on this movie, that I was like, 'This movie is about following the signs and really paying attention and being mindful.' I came off this movie [thinking], 'I'm not going to ignore this anymore. That's what inspired me to go get a doctor's recommendation to get an MRI.
The subsequent MRI revealed a tumor. Mathison is thankfully now on the mend and doing well. He added:
It seems like the first holiday season of this next phase of my life. I don't want to get corny, but it's almost like a second chance. A second chance at the holiday season.
The Christmas Club is airing now on Hallmark. Check out the trailer below.
