His wife, Renee, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the actor shared on Facebook Tuesday.
“Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee has a meningioma brain tumor,” Baio, 54, wrote. “Although 90% 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 it’s operable.”
“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,” he continued. “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, 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.”
