Subject: Healthwatch: Actor Sam Lloyd ("Scrubs")

am Lloyd, who is best known for playing attorney Ted on the hit series “Scrubs,” has been diagnosed with cancer.

Lloyd, who welcomed his first child with wife Vanessa in January, began experiencing headaches shortly afterward but chalked them up to being a new dad, according to the GoFundMe set up for his family. He then lost 10 pounds but also attributed that to “a busy schedule,” as he had been caring for his ailing mother in Vermont.

However, when the headaches increased, Lloyd underwent a CT scan that revealed he had a brain tumor. Within a day he went in for surgery, but doctors determined the tumor was too intertwined to remove. The couple was informed that the cancer in his brain had metastasized from his lungs, and further scans showed the cancer was also in his liver, spine and jaw.

The couple is hoping to raise $100,000 to use toward medical costs, childcare and more. So far, they have raised more than $15,000.

“Scrubs” creator Bill Lawrence tweeted out the fundraiser on Tuesday and wrote, “This is Sam. He was Ted on SCRUBS. He’s a pal. Just had his first baby. Get involved if you can. I am.”

Co-star Zach Braff retweeted Lawrence’s comment and added, “Tragic news from our beloved Sam (aka, Ted the Lawyer). I will of course be getting involved. Please send him your love.”
