Those of you who loved "Sweet Valley High" may have followed twins Brittany and Cynthia Daniel post-SVH. While Cynthia stepped out of the spotlight and married actor Cole Hauser and became a mom, Brittany stayed in the spotlight. She starred in such films at "White Chicks" and "Little Man" and played a tranny on "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia." She also had a long run on the BET series "The Game," which she has just returned to. Now, the nearly 38 year old is revealing that she has been battling for her life over the past few years.
Three years ago, Daniel's life was on the move and she was super excited until she started to feel ill and knew something just was not right. She was told that she had stage 4 no-Hodgkin's lymphoma. "It happened so suddenly," she revealed in a PEOPLE exclusive adding that she began chemo right after she learned the news. To make her recovery easier, she and her mom moved in to her twins guest house. "There is is no way I would have ever gotten through this without my family. My family is everything to me and I feel like they saw me through this." Her main reason for talking about her struggle was because she realized that she could help others in the same situation have some hope now that she is cancer-free. "I want to let people know it is absolutely possible to get through something like this. I want people to know they are not alone." Daniel is taking life day by day but she is happy to be back at work and is hopeful that she will be a mom one day. We wish her all the best and admire her courage.
