Former One Life to Live star Eddie Alderson is back in chemotherapy after finishing one round in April with positive spirits, but admitting it was not the end of his journey.

The actor, who grew up before our eyes as Matthew Buchanan on OLTL, announced today that he’s been back in chemotherapy for the past few weeks, but he seems to remain hopeful and in good spirits.

This time, the treatments are stronger, causing hair loss, so Alderson decided to shave it off, as illustrated by the picture of him with a mirror and clippers posted on Instagram.

He notes that chemo might have taken his hair, but not his “spirits or positive state of mind.”

Alderson was diagnosed with lymphoma in November and has been supported by his soap star sister, Kristen, the entire time.

Our thoughts are with the actor as he journeys through this next battle in his life.

My journey continues on~ I started stronger chemo a few weeks back, but nothing is getting me down. Chemo may take my hair but it will never take my spirits or positive state of mind. Feeling great, actually shot an 86 today on the golf course today, not too bad ????. One thing is for certain, there is #NoSurrender in me. Never.
