Zack Ryder reveals in the February 2013 issue of the WWE Magazine that while he was enrolled in high school, he overcame cancer. “When I was in high school, I had cancer. It’s not something I talk about a lot because I don’t want to turn it into a sympathy issue. To make a long story short, one summer I found a lump on my foot. It was a tumor and was removed, but a year later, the doctors found that it had returned in my lungs. They called the cancer a Synovial Sarcoma. The scars on my chest are from ports they inserted to put medicine into my body. It was scary. I had no white blood cells at one point, and my body couldn’t fight off infection. It was brutal, and I missed an entire year of school, but I’m completely healthy now, and I’ve been cancer-free ever since.” The February 2013 issue of WWE Magazine is available on newsstands everywhere.
