Betty Lou Bredemus, who raised four children, had also been an acting coach who once ran an acting school in Smyrna, Ga., according to People.
“My mom worked a full-time job and raised three girls pretty much on her own. My brother [actor Eric Roberts] is older, so he was gone and out of the house. She never showed the strain of it.” Roberts told People in a 2017 interview.
She also told People that as a young mom, she asked her mother advice for how to balance work and family.
“Instead of saying, ‘Well, you just have to apply yourself and it takes effort,’ she goes, ‘It’s called daycare, honey.’ And I was so appreciative and so grateful she didn’t tell me some sage, bulls— story about what it’s like to be a great mother,” she recalled.
Roberts also shared that she thinks of her mother “all the time.”

Dr. Brendon Stiles of Weill-Cornell, previously spoke with SurvivorNet about the promise of immunotherapy for lung cancer treatment.

“It’s not just hype, immunotherapy is here to stay and it’s really changed the face of lung cancer, just like targeted therapies,” Dr. Stiles said. “It’s amazing to me now that you can have stage 4 lung cancer and actually not even need chemotherapy. If you have high-expression of a protein that we know is targeted by immunotherapy, you may just get immunotherapy alone. That’s really changed the paradigm in lung cancer.”
