Brennan Elliott revealed his wife has cancer

In a recent Instagram post, Hallmark star Brennan Elliott revealed his wife has cancer. Calling her “fearless,” Elliott said his wife, Cami, is being treated for stage 4 gastric cancer.

“Those closest to me know that my Wife Cami has had several bouts with cancer in the past but now she embarks on a new journey as a Stage IV metastatic gastric cancer patient,” he wrote on in Instagram post. “There is no one I consider braver, stronger, more Fearless even when you’re Faced with a sinister opponent who never plays fair.”

Cami and Brennan have been married since 2011. They have two children.

Stage 4 stomach cancer is the most advanced form of the disease. By stage 4, the cancer has metastasized — or spread — to other areas of the body. It can be treated with surgery, chemotherapy, targeted drug therapy, immunotherapy, and radiation.

Elliott says his wife will pursue an aggressive course of treatment.

“She forges ahead into spring taking on the one of the most aggressive types of chemotherapy and immunotherapy,” he wrote. “As you all know me to be a very private person, this feels scary and exposing but If there is any hope that her story can help Even one person, then her cancer Experience Was Not Done in vain. Please keep @Camilla_row in your prayers.”

His Hallmark co-star Lacey Chabert replied, “We love you guys and are holding you close in our hearts. Cami is stronger than anyone I know. We are praying for you and sending all our love.”

Crown Media Family Networks announced that actor Brennan Elliott has signed a deal to make multiple pictures with the company. The parent corporation of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries shared the news on social media.

“Brennan brings tremendous talent and charisma to every role,” said Lisa Hamilton Daly, executive vice president of programming for Crown Media Family Networks. “He’s a joy to work with and we look forward to collaborating with him on new movies we know our viewers will fall in love with.”

Elliott has starred in movies for both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries, including the All Of My Heart series and the Crossword Mysteries series. He joins fellow Hallmark stars Lacey Chabert and Heather Hemmens in signing an exclusive contract with the network.

Hallmark has been making announcements about multi-picture deals as its new rival, GAC Media, gains steam. Started by former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott, GAC Media began programming on two cable networks in September 2021. It aired 12 original movies during the holiday season, and has premiered two films, The Winter Palace and Harmony From the Heart, in 2022.

Several actors who have also worked for Hallmark have signed agreements to work for GAC Media.
