Even though Anthony Anderson was raised by his stepffather, Sterling Bowman, he only addressed him as dad.

"He was the only father I knew or cared about," the actor tells PEOPLE. "He raised me as any father would, with love, patience, understanding and discipline. I'm grateful because he taught me what it took to be a man. He wasn't perfect, which made him even more of my hero."

The two first bonded when his stepfather met Anderson's mother while she was out for a walk pushing her son in a stroller. "It takes a helluva man to raise another man's child as his own and that's what my father did with no fuss or fanfare because that's what real men do," the actor says.

Amber Marchese Blogs About the Moment When Cancer Made Her Feel 'Totally Alone'

Amber Marchese Blogs About the Moment When Cancer Made Her Feel 'Totally Alone'

Amber Marchese, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey , is blogging about her second battle with cancer for PEOPLE. After surviving breast cancer in 2009, she discovered a lump, which turned out to be cancerous, in her right breast in April. Marchese will share updates on her treatment and how she is coping with this second round of the deadly disease with prayer, a positive outlook and the help of her family.

If you read my blog last week, you know I left off at a point where the doctors had to determine the Stage to which my disease progressed. As I said last week, the first step before determining your treatment is Staging your disease. My amazing oncologist, Dr. Michael Nissenblatt, began ordering a gamut of tests to see if and or how far the cancer spread. My first scan was a full body PET scan (positron emission tomography (PET) scan. The PET scan uses a radioactive substance to identify cells rapidly metabolizing sugar. Why do we care about sugar? That was my question.

Simply put, cancer cells grow at an accelerated rate and require a food source, so cells that are rapidly metabolizing sugar are growing (more on nutrition and cancer in a later blog). The PET scan identifies spots of increased activity. The cells that burn sugar are called "hot spots" because they literally glow on the scan, with a tumor glowing as it grows much faster than normal cells. Before you look at your PET scan and freak out, half your organs should glow! Remember many of your organs (like your heart) better have activity, or you are literally dead.

So my husband Jim and I drove to the radiology center. It was clear day, and the sky was blue, but I only know this because my husband told me – I was lost in thought.
