UPDATE: As previously reported, Zema Ion had an emergency appendectomy this week which resulted in doctors finding a five centimeter tumor in his colon. Ion is waiting back on results of a biopsy for a status update and will be undergoing another surgery to have the tumor removed. Ion, real name Michael Paris, doesn’t have insurance and a fundraising drive has been set up by his girlfriend at GiveForward.com. You can donate by clicking here. As of this writing, $190 has been raised.
The goal is to raise $30,000 over the next 93 days.
ORIGINAL: TNA X-Division wrestler Zema Ion recently had to be rushed to the hospital for severe stomach pains. He posted the following on Twitter…
“Good morning! Ended up goin to the hospital afterall last night. And long story short….it was one of the smartest things i could have done”
He then added the following update though Facebook, noting that he had appendicitis and that doctors found a tumor on his colon…
“I’m alive! Seriously thank you all for the get well wishes. Means the world to me. I was rushed to the hospital lasts night for sharp stomach pains i was having. I couldnt stop puking. For like 9 straight hours. I didnt wanna go to the hosptial, but the pain was too much to handle. Thank god i went, as i ended up having appendicitis and had to have my appendix removed today. I consider this a blessing in disguise too, coz the cat scans also revealed that i have a tumor on my colon and will eventually need another surgery to try and remove it. Hoping it is not cancerous. Pray for me! This really sucks lol”
