Both Elliott and DeLoach have dealt with hardships in their lives recently, which no doubt are experiences they will bring to their characters in this tale of loss and love.
Elliott’s wife, Cami, has been battling cancer. She recently underwent a major surgery that Elliott told fans was a success. Her treatment continues, and the couple has shared how thankful they are to fans for their prayers.
In late 2021, DeLoach lost her father to Pick’s disease, a form of frontotemporal dementia. Her father was diagnosed the same year that her son had open-heart surgery.
“Both experiences were extraordinarily challenging and traumatic, however, my faith has grown exponentially,” she said in an interview with the Alzheimer’s Association. She shared that she’s open about the experience so she can help others who may go through something similar.
