Scott Baio recently shared some heartbreaking news, revealing that wife Renee has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
“Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee, has a meningioma brain tumor,”; the former Happy Days star said in an emotional Facebook post. “Although 90 per cent of these type of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location. We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if its operable.”;
He added: “Renee has been down some rough roads in her life, yet each time with her strong faith in God, she comes through a better and stronger person. During this time we ask for your prayers and support. My wife is my rock. She refuses to even shed one tear, nor will she question God’s will. Renee, [daughter] Bailey, and I will get through this and along the way maybe help educate others to get checked out (MRI with contrast) as 6,500 people each year, mostly women, get these tumors.”
Following an outpouring of support from fans, Baio issued his heartfelt appreciation: “Thanks 4 the well wishes,”; he added in a subsequent Facebook post. “A meningioma brain tumor is just a small bump in the road compared to the trials & tribulations my spec needs kids live.”;
