Phil Mickelson’s Mother Diagnosed With Cancer Weeks After Wife

July 7, 2009

California (ChattahBox) – Phil Mickelson, who only a few weeks ago released the devastating news that his wife had been diagnosed with breast cancer, has had to face tragedy once again in his own family after he announced this week that his mother has now been diagnosed with the same disease.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Mary Mickelson is on her way into surgery at the end of the week to remove a tumor in her breast, just a week after her daughter-in-law, Amy Mickelson, had surgery in the same hospital.

Mickelson has said that his golfing schedule will depend on his wife, and that he will likely miss the next several opens, including this year’s British Open, which he was set to play.
