Brittany Daniel has revealed a secret cancer battle.

The actress, known for “Sweet Valley High” and “The Game,” tells People she was diagnosed with stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011 after experiencing symptoms including excruciating back pain.

“It happened so suddenly,” she says.

Daniel began chemotherapy and lived with her twin sister Cynthia as she recovered.

She kept her ordeal private until realizing her story could help others in similar circumstances.

“I want to let people know it is absolutely possible to get through something like this,” says Daniel. “I want people to know they are not alone.”

The actress is now healthy and cancer-free.
