"Sometimes God throws you a curve ball."
That's the message former Happy Days star Scott Baio posted on his Facebook page on June 15 before asking for "any extra prayers" for his wife Renee Baio.
Renee, 42, was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor, and the couple found out just recently.
"Although 90% of these types of tumors are benign, they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location," Scott explained. "We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if it's operable."
During this difficult time, the 53-year-old actor wrote about Renee's strength.
"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," he continued. "She refuses to even shed one tear, nor will she question God's will."
The couple has been married since 2007 and are parents to 7-year-old daughter, Bailey DeLuca. Scott is also the stepfather to 25-year-old Kalyn, Renee's daughter from a previous relationship.
Scott is hopeful.
"Renee, Bailey and I will get through this and along the way maybe help educate others to get checked out (MRI with contrast) as 6500 people each year, mostly women get these tumors," he stated.
As of Thursday, over 1,000 people have left well wishes to Scott and his family.
