'Scrubs' Fans Can Now Donate to GoFundMe for Sam Lloyd Amid Cancer Battle

By

Shortly after the birth of his first child, Scrubs star Sam Lloyd — known for playing Ted Buckland on the medical comedy series — was diagnosed with lung cancer. 

Now, Scrubs producer producer Tim Hobert and his wife Jill Tracy have started a GoFundMe page that will allow the actor's fans to donate to help with his upcoming medical expenses. On the campaign, Tim shared Sam's current condition with followers. 

"Midway through January, Sam began to experience headaches and he had lost 10 pounds. He figured the headaches were caused by the lack of sleep that came along with his new role as Daddy," Tim wrote. "On Thursday, January 17th, as his headaches grew stronger, Sam decided to go to the doctor. The doctor thought the pain might be sinus-related so he ordered a CT Scan. The scan revealed a mass on Sam’s brain. Within a day, he was in brain surgery. Unfortunately the tumor was too intertwined so the surgeons couldn’t remove it. By Sunday, Sam and Vanessa were informed that the cancer in his brain had metastasized from his lungs. Further scans showed the cancer was also in his liver, spine, and jaw."
