Other stars confirmed for the event include Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers, Y&R), Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott, Y&R), Christian Le Blanc (Michael Baldwin, Y&R), Cameron Mathison (Drew Cain, GH), Avery Pohl (ex-Esme Prince, GH), Genie Francis (Laura Collins, GH), Stephen Nichols (Steve Johnson, Days of our Lives), Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, Y&R), Kristina Wagner (Felicia Jones, GH), Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer, B&B), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber, GH), Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn, GH), Tanisha Harper (Jordan Ashford, GH), Tabyana Ali (Trina Robinson, GH), Thorsten Kaye (Ridge Forrester, B&B), Rena Sofer (Lois Cerulo, GH), Kate Mansi (Kristina Davis, GH), Lisa LoCicero (Olivia Falconeri, GH), Parry Shen (Brad Cooper, GH), Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht, GH), and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, GH).

Grahn's video also features Grahn's good friend Michelle Strojny, who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disease that currently has no cure. In the video, Strojny urges fans to attend and donate to help treat this disease.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Grahn met Strojny when she did Zoom sessions with fans during COVID lockdown, and they hit it off. It was her story that prompted the actress to get fellow soap stars together to help raise funds for ALS research.

On-screen, Grahn is involved with an ALS story as Alexis' friend and colleague Gregory Chase suffers from the disease. In real life, the soap world was rocked by ALS when longtime star Michael Zaslow died from complications from the disease in 1998.

Is it inspiring to see so many actors gathering together to raise money for a cause dear to their hearts? Are you enjoying watching Gregory's ALS story play out on GH?
