“One of TWD’s own could use a little help.  Erik Jensen, who played Dr. Steven Edwards in S5 was just diagnosed with cancer, and it’s a time of great uncertainty for him and his family. If you want to send something his way,” Gimple wrote on X (fka Twitter).

“After miraculously surviving a brain aneurysm just a year and a half ago, our beloved Erik Jensen was just diagnosed with Stage IV colorectal cancer,” his GoFundMe page reads.

It goes on to say that Erik and his wife Jessica “are full-time freelance artists and live without the cushion that long-term commercial work can provide. Erik’s aneurysm, the double strikes and now this diagnosis have put their family in an extremely precarious financial position and they need a lot of help to make it through the next year, pay for treatment to fight his cancer, keep their home, and maintain some sort of stability for Sadie (their 13-year-old daughter).

Jensen recurred as Dr. Steven Edwards in Season 5, the Grady Memorial doctor for whom Beth Greene briefly worked as an assistant.

He was most recently in post-production on two films, according to IMDb, Rebel Girl and The Collaboration. His other TV credits include For Life and The Equalizer, among others.
