Former Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli has terminal brain cancer

Former Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli got the worst possible news as it was determined that his brain cancer is terminal and his doctors say only 5% of patients with that condition survive a maximum of five years.

Louisville’s WDRB.COM is reporting that Cappotelli was diagnosed with Grade 4 glioblastoma tumor, the most deadly form of brain cancer. “Though it seems unfortunate, I want it to be portrayed as a story of hope … unending hope,” the 36-year-old Cappotelli said.

In 2007, Cappotelli beat cancer but after ten years of remission, cancer came back with a vengeance. In June of this year, surgeons removed 90% of the mass pressing on his skull while the remaining 10% was being treated with chemo. The remaining tumor that still resides in his brain is too dangerous to touch as it’s next to the brain stem.

Cappotelli won Tough Enough season 3 in 2003 along with John Hennigan, better known now as Johny Impact.
