Seybold-Catron (pictured, left), who lives in the Indianapolis area, found out about the tumor last week, sometime after the Jan. 7 relay.

The brain surgery will be her second. In 1995, a tumor was removed during a six-hour operation.

Seybold-Catron and her skating partner and brother, Wayne Seybold, finished 10th in the 1988 Winter Olympic Games (news - web sites) in Calgary. The Marion natives ran the final leg of last week's relay together.

Seybold-Catron said that the next surgery will be more difficult than the first because she is a mother now. She and her husband have two daughters, one 17 months old, and the other 10 weeks.

"When I first found out (last week), I was upset because I have kids now, so that puts it in a different light," she said.

Still, she said, the road to recovery is one that she can travel.

"My husband and I have talked, and him being a professional athlete himself, he said, 'Just gear yourself up,' " Seybold-Catron said.

Seybold-Catron, who is a figure skating instructor at The Forum in Fishers, said recovery could take between two months and a year. The surgery will be done in Arizona, she said.

Becky Shull, The Forum's skating director, said Seybold-Catron will "come through with flying colors."

"She's been through this before, so she knows what to expect," Shull said. "I don't expect her to have any problems. We hope to see her back this summer."
