Renowned actor Erik Jensen, who starred in films including “The Walking Dead,” “For Life,” and “Mr. Robot,” has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. 

His multitalented wife Jessica Blank announced this news on a GoFundMe website. Blank added that Jensen miraculously survived a brain aneurysm only a year and a half ago.

Sadly, his liver has been affected by the cancer. Despite this, Jensen is still seen as youthful and healthy since he has shown incredible fortitude and tenacity by carrying on with film projects and keeping up his duties as a writer and director while receiving chemotherapy. His medical team believes that the tumors may be sufficiently reduced to allow for two major surgeries to remove them entirely.

In a Saturday Instagram post, Blank revealed the GoFundMe details and said that Jensen is a “survivor” who relentlessly fights for the needy and transforms hardship into beauty.
