Nikki is a breast cancer survivor and carrier of a BRCA-2 mutation, which increases her chances of contracting breast cancer, ovarian cancer and pancreatic cancer. As a part of her regular health monitoring, she has regular tumor marker blood tests for ovarian cancer (it's called the CA-125 test), and in June 2019, one of these tests came back with high markers. A CT scan that followed revealed a mass in her abdomen, and on July 22 she underwent surgery at Aurora Baycare in Green Bay to remove it. We will keep you updated as we receive new information.
