Regina shared her unexpected journey
(Stock disclosed to her audience that, following a visit to the emergency room this past weekend, medical professionals identified a 14 cm mass on her left kidney. She explained that her immediate course of action involves seeking out a urologist and a surgeon for the mass’s removal.
“In the best-case scenario, they’ll simply remove it, and we can put this behind us, but I won’t have a definitive answer until I consult with a specialist,” Stock explained on her Instagram. “Our goal is to secure an appointment in Dallas by the end of the week.”
After her discharge from the ER, she returned shortly afterward due to experiencing additional discomfort, and during this visit, doctors detected an ovarian cyst. Stock emphasized that this development does not alter her plans to compete in the Mrs. World pageant scheduled for January 2024.
“Regina’s Resilience: Balancing Beauty, Family, and a Health Battle”
In a message to her followers on Facebook, Regina reassured everyone that, for the time being, this diagnosis hasn’t significantly impacted her day-to-day life, as she feels fine.
She’s also determined to continue her preparations for the upcoming Mrs. World competition, scheduled for January in Las Vegas, where women from around the world will compete for the coveted crown.
Hailing from West Texas, Regina has been participating in local and state pageants for nearly a decade. She took a break from competing when she got married and had children.
However, her decision to enter the Mrs. Texas pageant as a married mother was initially seen as a learning experience, not an expectation of winning the title in her first year.
In an interview earlier this year, she admitted that she was genuinely surprised when her name was called, and the emotions of the moment were overwhelming.
