'Scrubs' Star Sam Lloyd Diagnosed With Cancer Weeks After Welcoming First Child

Friends and family of the star -- who is best known for playing lawyer Ted on Scrubs -- have created a GoFundMe to help to assist Lloyd with medical costs.

Just weeks after Sam Lloyd and his wife Vanessa welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Weston, the actor reportedly began suffering from headaches and unexpected weight loss -- which he attributed to the usual hectic schedule of a new parent.
