At a June Korn Ferry Tour event at TPC Sawgrass, Villegas, 38, told the press that Mia was battling tumors.

“She went through surgery and obviously needed treatment. She just started her second round of chemotherapy,” Villegas said.

“It’s been really tough to see her—because you know how it is, she’s in pain. But she keeps fighting, she’s inspiring us and again that’s why I’m here.”

Villegas said the family noticed something was wrong with Mia in late February, as she was no longer as active as before and had been crying at night.

After a visit to the pediatrician and a subsequent scan, they found tumors on Mia’s brain and spine.

“We don’t know exactly what’s going to happen. She started her second round of chemo; the doctor doesn’t want to do a very detailed scan until after a third round. It’s some anxious times,” Villegas said.
