Shantel VanSanten Wants You to Test Your Home for Lung Cancer-Causing Radon

Shantel VanSanten has turned a personal tragedy into a catalyst for helping others.

In 2013, the Shooter actress’s grandmother, Doris Dooymea, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. Seven months later, on March 27, 2014, Dooymea, a non-smoker, passed away at age 79.

“It left my family and I in a lot of confusion, and to our ignorance, we did not know that lung cancer was the number one cancer killer and that it could happen to anyone. We made the grave assumption that it could only happen to people who smoked,” VanSanten, who has since joined the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE, an initiative dedicated to defeating lung cancer, tells PEOPLE.

As part of LUNG FORCE’s National Women’s Lung Health Week (May 6-12) and LUNG FORCE’s partnership with CVS Health, where from May 6-26, you can visit a CVS pharmacy to donate $1, $3 or more to raise funds for lung cancer awareness, research and education (for more info, visit Lung.org/CVS) – VanSanten is sharing her story and what she has learned in hopes of educating others.

VanSanten and her grandmother, both from Minnesota, were extremely close. When Dooymea, who had been a breast cancer survivor, started experiencing respiratory issues, and was ultimately diagnosed with lung cancer, VanSanten was her caretaker.

USA Network Renews ‘Shooter’ for Season 3

The wait and worrying is finally over. Shooter has been renewed for a third season! It will consist of 13 episodes, up from 10 and 8 from the previous two seasons, respectively. Filming starts on January, but pre-production has already begun and the cast has shared some photos while on training!

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – USA Network is keeping Shooter around for another season.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has handed out a third-season renewal to the military drama starring Ryan Phillippe. Production on season three begins in January in Los Angeles. Sources say season three will consist of 13 episodes — up from 10 and eight in seasons one and two, respectively. Season three will pick up where season two left off and use all new footage with viewers getting resolution from the sophomore run, which was cut short from its planned 10-episode run following Phillippe’s injury.

The upcoming season is based on the second book in the Stephen Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger series, titled Black Light. As Bob Lee struggles to put an end to the events of season two, a nemesis reveals mysterious details surrounding his father Earl’s death, leading Bob Lee toward a startling conspiracy that hits close to home.

Shantel VanSanten to Recur in ‘Scorpion’ Season 4

While we’re waiting for news on Shooter, Shantel will be seen next in the current season of Scorpion!

TVLine has learned exclusively that VanSanten is set to recur during Season 4 of the CBS drama as Toby’s onetime fiancée, Amy Berkstead, who is now married to his nemesis, pop-psychologist Quincy Berkstead (Jeff Galfer).
Amy is described as a brilliant geneticist that Toby met while at Harvard Medical School. Although she broke off their engagement due to Toby’s gambling and immaturity, she (for obvious reasons!) still has an effect on her ex all these years later.
Will newlywed Toby’s wife Happy be threatened by the beautiful and personable rival? Stay tuned for that answer and more when VanSanten makes her debut in Episode 13, airing in January after the holiday break.
