— -- Actor Scott Baio just learned that his wife Renee has a meningioma brain tumor.

"Although 90 percent of these type of tumors are benign they can cause serious problems depending on the size of the tumor and the location. We are waiting to learn the exact location to see if its operable," the actor said earlier this week on Facebook.

The "Charles in Charge" star continued: "Renee has been down some rough roads in her life, yet each time with her strong faith in God, she comes through a better and stronger person. During this time we ask for your prayers and support. My wife is my rock."

Baio, 54, said his wife has been strong, not shedding "one tear" through the process.

"Renee, Bailey and I will get through this and along the way maybe help educate others to get checked out [MRI with contrast] as 6,500 people each year, mostly women get these tumors," he continued.

Baio married his wife in 2007 and the couple have a daughter, Bailey DeLuca, 7.
