It sounds like a very tough and uncertain road head for Scott Baio and his wife, Renee.
According to media reports and confirmed by Baio himself, Renee has been diagnosed with what’s being terms “moderate to severe” chronic microvascular disease — a condition that affects the brain and may have a profound impact on the rest of her life.
The actor confirmed Renee’s diagnosis first through Twitter on Saturday night (below):
And afterwards, Baio spoke to the media about the health news, as well.
Speaking with The Blast, Baio said:
“She was a former stuntwoman and had a massive brain injury in  due to a jet ski accident. We don’t know if her tumors and this new disease has anything to do with this … All we know is she must live as stress-free, depression free and anxiety free life as possible and a get good amount of sleep each night. This new disease can cause strokes and dementia.”
So, so scary.
Self-care becomes critical for Renee at this point — and it’s doubly scary considering Renee’s history of brain tumors.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Baio family.
