Scott Walker’s Wife Dealing With Cancer

via CarolinaHurricanes.com,

Scott’s wife, Julie, was diagnosed with cervical cancer during the team’s series against the Boston Bruins, which concluded with Walker’s dramatic, overtime game-winner in Game 7 on Thursday night in Boston. Julie Walker’s cancer is treatable, and she is expected to make a full recovery.

“My wife is an amazing person and we are looking forward to a positive outcome from this challenge,” said Scott Walker. “I will address the situation with the media this afternoon, but my family would appreciate its privacy going forward.”
