Chad Brown Battling Cancer
By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer
In just three short tweets written on Saturday, the world found out that Chad Brown has been diagnosed with cancer and has already undergone surgery for the disease.
Brown’s wife, fellow professional poker player Vanessa Rousso, posted to her twitter account three times regarding Brown’s cancer. Doctors removed a ten pound tumor from his abdomen on Friday, and Rousso stated that the cancer appears to be sarcoma, an extremely rare form of the disease that only has 15,000 new cases per year in the United States.
Brown tweeted a message of gratitude Saturday thanking his well wishers.
