Stewart Cink Steps Away as Wife Fights Cancer

STEWART CINK WITHDREW FROM the Wells Fargo Championship on Tuesday. The 2009 British Open champion announced on Twitter that his wife Lisa has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Here's the (above) note Cink tweeted:
Last week my wife, Lisa, and I received some unfortunate news. Lisa has been diagnosed with breast cancer -- a startling and unexpected revelation for everyone in our family. 
We are still in the process of figuring out exactly what she is fighting, and the uncertainty continues to be very difficult. However, we serve a great God, and our friends and family have been and will be by her side every step of the way. 
In order to assist Lisa in meeting this challenge, I will be stepping away from competitive golf until circumstances improve for her. Hopefully that day will come quickly for her. 
Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward.
I interviewed Stewart Cink in 2011. He was candid and personable. Read those conversations here.
