Days of our Lives’ Chrishell Stause (Jordan Ridgeway) shared a photo and video of her mother wearing one of her former wigs. She wrote on Instagram, “So I wore this wig many years ago to the American Music Awards just for fun to change it up. But now since my mom has lost her hair from cancer treatment, I felt like what better time to dust it off and have a little fun?? Here’s me teaching my mom to give a good soap turn-hair flip.” About four months ago she also shared a photo with her mother and sister as her mother was undergoing chemo. “Staying positive and laughing in the chemo room with my mom & sis. Make the most of today. We all thank you for the prayers and well wishes!”

The actress revealed the devastating news about her mother’s diagnosis on February 4, which is World Cancer Day. She wrote, “I just found out today is World Cancer Day eerily on the same day I found out my mom has 1 to 2 months to live from the same lung cancer that took my dad on Easter. I can’t make sense of what life is teaching me yet, but my heart is with every person fighting this horrible disease and every person that it robbed a loved one from.” Stause’s father passed away after his own battle with lung cancer in April 2019. She later revealed that after a second opinion things were looking up. “My mom got a second opinion -ALWAYS do that!- Thank GOD we didn’t listen to that doctor because she has now completed her first full round of chemo & radiation and responded positively! The results of her new round of tests & updated prognosis are much better than before and she is a fighter! THANK YOU for every prayer said for her.”

Sadly due to the situation we are all living under, Stause was unable to see her mom for months while she was in the hospital and undergoing her treatments. She told US Weekly, “We talk on the phone every day, which we never did before. In the strangest turn of events, something that by design is keeping us apart has actually made us closer than ever.”

Stause is nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award this year for Outstanding Guest Performer. Tune in to the Daytime Emmys on Friday June 26 at 8:00 PM ET on CBS to see who the winners are.
