‘Scrubs’ actor Sam Lloyd diagnosed with lung cancer, brain tumor weeks after welcoming son

Scrubs” actor Sam Lloyd has been diagnosed with lung cancer just weeks after his wife Vanessa gave birth to their first child together.

A GoFundMe page for the actor, 55, said Lloyd was diagnosed in January after welcoming a son named Weston.

According to the page, Lloyd began experiencing headaches and suddenly lost 10 pounds which he initially attributed to his busy schedule and sleepless nights taking care of his newborn son. But after going to the doctor, a CT scan revealed a brain tumor.

“In the face of this devastating news, Sam and Vanessa have been incredibly strong and positive. Humor and laughter, which have been a huge part of Sam’s life, will undoubtedly help him with what lies ahead,” the GoFundMe page, which was created by “Scrubs” executive produce Tim Hobert, said.

The page noted that Lloyd was cheering his “beloved New England Patriots in his hospital room” just after his diagnosis. His cheering was so loud he was asked by a nurse to “cheer quieter.”
