As reported earlier, former Tough Enough competitor Matt Cappotelli is suffering from a tumour in his brain. The original tumour was treated back in 2005 but unfortunately, it ended up returning this year and needed a surgery.
Cappotelli gave an update on his surgery in a Facebook post. Here’s what he said:
“To give everyone the best update I can, here we go. The doctors said my surgery was very successful and they were able to accomplish exactly what they set out to do. From start to finish the surgery took between 9 and 10 hours. I can’t tell you how much respect and love I have for the staff at Norton Brownsboro Hospital, you are all truly amazing people. As I stated before, there is still an inoperable portion of tumour in my brain stem that will have to be dealt with at a later time. The game plan, for now, is for me to get as healthy and rested as possible and wait for the pathology results to come back. Once we have the pathology report in a few weeks, we will know what type of tumour we’re dealing with and how to attack the portion in my brain stem with the most effective treatment protocol. The fight will continue, this is just the next step. Thanks for all of your prayers, messages, and kind words, I LOVE YOU ALL”
