- SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia has posted a blog discussing her mother’s battle with breast cancer in 1989—she is alive today and cancer-free.

“It all started when my mother felt a lump in her breast. She had a previous scare the year before in her other breast, but it turned out to be a cyst that disappeared on its own. This time, she wasn’t so lucky. After further tests it was confirmed she had breast cancer and would need a mastectomy. Once they went in, they found that it spread to her lymph nodes, and she would need chemotherapy. This was one of the most humbling experiences to watch because as a result of the chemo, she was often sick and also lost all her hair. I couldn’t believe what she was going through, especially because my mother had always been the rock of our family. She had been the one to take care of my sister and me, along with my grandmother who lived with us; all while my dad was away and fighting in the Vietnam War. Now the tables were turned and she was the one fighting for her life,” Garcia wrote.

She continues, “As a result of her going through this, I learned a lot about breast cancer and especially the importance of knowing about my family history and risk, knowing what is normal for me, screening tests and talking to my doctor about what it all means for me. I have fibrocystic breasts, and my doctor recommends I also undergo periodic ultrasounds.”

- Last week on Raw, viewers caught a glimpse of Paul Heyman’s business card during Brock Lesnar’s invasion of Triple H’s office. The official WWE website has posted designs of what the business cards of Wade Barrett, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Damien Sandow, The Shield and Dolph Ziggler may look like.

- WWE Hall of Famers Nikolai Volkoff and Tito Santana have been announced to appear at the Sports Card, Toy, Comic & Colectibles Expo at the Wildwood Convention Center in Wildwood, New Jersey, taking place July 5 and 6.
