Scott Baio Makes Devastating Confession About His Wife

Scott Baio shared some sad news with fans this week, as he announced that his lovely wife and the mother of his child is suffering from a brain tumor. Renee Baio is just 42 years old, and doctors don't know if they'll be able to remove the tumor.


The 54-year-old Charles in Charge star posted on Facebook about Renee, 42, "Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee has a meningioma brain tumor ... 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 its operable."

Ugh. What makes this suck even more than the usual cancer-suckiness is that the couple has a 7-year-old daughter Bailey. I hate to think about the possibility that their child may go through the rest of her life without a mother, and I hope more than anything that Renee pulls through.

Thankfully, she has a good chance, as meningiomas are one of the most common types of brain tumors, and are noncancerous more often than not. Of course, they are still very serious, often involving surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

Scott wrote of his lovely bride, "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."

He continued, "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."

Bless this couple, and I hope they overcome this!
