Jenny McCarthy shares ‘incredible news’ after frightening battle with brain tumor


Jenny McCarthy has shared a very positive update on her health after her brain tumor returned and required surgery.

The talented wedding photographer and businesswoman shared the happy news on Wednesday evening that she had once again been given the green light.

“I had amazing news today,” she wrote.

“No other treatment needed after my operation, just regular scans!”.

Alongside a stunning photo of Jenny looking into the eyes of her husband, TV presenter Martin King, she thanked her husband for supporting her during this difficult time.

“This man is the nicest, most genuine person on the planet without him, I don’t know where I would be.

“So much to look forward to! I’m back!!”.

Jenny had a brain tumor removed in 2011, but earlier this year doctors discovered new growth.

At the time, Martin informed viewers of The Six O’Clock Show, “‘My wife had brain surgery after her tumor came back. This time, compared to 2011, was much more difficult,” he said.

“Recovery has been a bit of a roller coaster over the past few weeks. Jenny has been back in hospital a few times due to fears of infection and bleeding.

“Luckily everything is fine and she is home now.

“Three weeks after the operation last time we were enjoying morning coffees and short walks, but this time it’s very different. She has severe debilitating headaches.”
