Scott Baio's wife, Renee, took to Twitter on March 10 to reveal that she was diagnosed with two tumors and Microvascular Brain Disease four months ago.

The stuntwoman revealed her diagnosis when responded to a fan's question about her health on Twitter Saturday. 57-year-old Scott also took to Twitter to confirm the unfortunate news by saying, "Unfortunately, this is true". Renee is forever my rock, my life and my soulmate!

In support, Scott retweeted Renee's post with his own words, calling her the toughest person he knows.

Renee needs to live as stress-free as possible now for her health, he said, adding that she suffers from a moderate to severe form of the chronic disease. "Although 90 percent of these types of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location".

It also meant there was just no way the Browns planned on allowing Kizer to be a starter for the team again. Jackson fully expected Kizer to struggle in his first year and those fears played out week after week.

Microvascular Brain Disease aka Microvascular Ischemic Disease develops when there are changes to small blood vessels in the brain, according to Healthline. The damage can block blood flow in the brain, and deprive brain cells of oxygen. In 2015, the stuntwoman was found with a meningioma brain tumor. The cause is still unknown, and the tumors are often treated with surgery and radiation.

Scott and Renee married in 2007, welcoming their daughter, Bailey, two months later.

The couple has a daughter Bailey DeLuca, 10. Renee also has a daughter, 28-year-old daughter, Kalyn, from a previous relationship. She has also reportedly battled breast cancer.

It's not the first time Renee has dealt with health issues. "Her job is not to defend me". "If I can save one person along the way, I'm okay".
