GH Alum Linda Elena Tovar Helping Her Brother Recover From Brain Surgery

She played nurse Rosalie Martinez on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but actress Linda Elena Tovar is helping her brother, Pablo, in a different way as he recovers from his recent brain surgery to remove a life-threatening brain tumor. “Thankfully, the operation was a success,” she reported, “but the road to a full recovery is now the next big hurdle for him! I’m hoping to ease some of the financial burden that inevitably comes with a procedure like this, both from medical expenses for the operation, ongoing treatment and care, and also from loss of income from not being able to work.”

To help her brother stay on his feet as he recovers from his life-saving surgery, Tovar has established a GoFundMe to help raise the money necessary. In just over a month, it is already very nearly to its goal, and she is extremely grateful for the support. “I appreciate any and all help and send my love and gratitude from the bottom of my heart,” the daytime alum declared.

Tovar is incredibly thankful that her sibling came through his brain surgery and wants to make sure he sticks around even longer. “Those of you who’ve met my brother know what a kind, generous, caring, and wonderful human he is,” she expressed. “We are so grateful to still have him with us and for the opportunity to help him out in his time of need, the way he’s helped so many people in his lifetime.”

GH fans remember Tovar as Rosalie, the nurse who originally helped Nina with her various schemes and later revealed that she’d married Brad Cooper so they wouldn’t have to testify against each other in court. After leaving daytime, the actress played Iris Machado on the CW reboot of DYNASTY and Isabel Pardo on Netflix’s DESIGNATED SURVIVOR among roles on HOME and NCIS: LOS ANGELES.
