This is heartbreaking. Scott Baio announced that his wife of seven years Renee Baio is suffering from a brain tumor. The actor requests prayers for his wife during this very difficult time for them both.

Scott Baio, 54,  took to his Facebook page on June 16 to tell his fans and supporters that his wife Renee Baio, 42, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. So sad. The couple, who are also parents to seven-year old daughter Bailey, are meeting with doctors while asking for support and prayers during this challenging time in their lives.

“Just a few days ago we learned my wife, Renee has a meningioma brain tumor,” Scott wrote on his Facebook. He went on to explain “Although 90% of these types 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. 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.” Stay strong Renee. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

Renee Shows Brave Face While Dealing With Diagnosis

Despite her very serious diagnosis, Renee has absolutely refused to let her spirits flag. After receiving an outpouring of support from fans she wrote a message on her private Twitter account which read in part: ‘Thank 4 well wishes. A Meningioma brain tumor is a bump in the road compared 2 the trials/tribulations my spec needs kids live,” which was a reference to her daughter Bailey who was incorrectly diagnosed in 2007 with GA-1, a metabolic disorder, that affects special needs children.
