CelebNSports247.com has learned that he was forced him into retirement at age 27 when he had to have surgery on his brain.
Everything seemed to be going well, but now the 12 years later the tumor is back, so Cappotelli released a statement Wednesday on his wife, Lindsay Cappotelli’s Facebook page.
The Facebook post reads as follows:
“Thank you all for the prayers. We need them.
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″
Best wishes to you Cappotelli. Stay strong.
