Amy Mickelson, wife of Phil Mickelson, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The news was released this morning after Mickelson had undergone extensive testing. According to the release, more testing is scheduled but major surgery is expected, perhaps within the next two weeks.
Phil Mickelson has suspended his PGA Tour schedule indefinitely.
Amy Mickelson, who married Phil in 1996, has been a huge part of her husband's career. Whether watching a tournament with their three children or taking an active role in a variety of charitable causes she and Phil have been involved with, Amy Mickelson brings an uncommon charm with her.
A former Phoenix Suns cheerleader, Amy can light up a room. Whether it's been a day, a month or a year since she's seen someone she knows, Amy makes a point of reconnecting with friends and acquaintances.
In the same way her husband draws fans to him, Amy has her own legion of fans.
And we're all wishing her well though this.
