One of the co-winners (along with Johnny Mundo) of Tough Enough from the third season, Matt Cappotelli had formerly needed to undergo brain surgery to remove a tumor back in 2005. That surgery was a success but ultimately led to his retirement from the ring.
Unfortunately, Cappotelli now has to undergo a second surgery to remove a brain tumor once again as it had come back more aggressive than the first appearance. Cappotelli had the following to say:
“Waiting to be taken for my MRI and get prepared for my second brain surgery tomorrow. Just found out that the tumor that I had removed 10 years ago has come back much more aggressively and needs to be dealt with. It’s a very large tumor and there is a portion that is inoperable. The portion that they are hoping to remove will be sent for pathology, which will determine what exactly we are dealing with and provide insight on future treatment plans and the next steps for the inoperable portion in my brain stem. #John9:1-3″
