For at least a few months fans have known that something wasn't quite right with Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara Ryan). A change in the actress' speech prompted some fans to worry that the actress might have suffered a stroke. The concern was well placed: Pinter had been quietly battling oral cancer.
"I want to thank the fans for the love and support they have sent my way these past months," Pinter said in a statement. "You will never know how much your kind words and encouragement have meant to me."
Pinter underwent several surgeries to reconstruct her tongue -- and expresses some disappointment that her cancer was not caught sooner.
