Once upon of time, not too long ago, former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry was a rising star in the sports world. She was on her way. Then, controversy struck and she was ultimately part of a layoff by the network. The 33-year-old found success with Fox News most recently, but a medical scare has seemingly halted her career for now.
Earlier this week, McHenry had some news to share on social media. Fox Nation's "UN-PC" show host hinted she had a medical issue.
"I had good & bad news today. Overwhelmed by the support by friends & strangers alike. With the best surgeons and doctors. Just another thing to take on," she wrote in a tweet. "Please I can't stress enough, make your check-ups. Get an MRI early. It could have saved me."
The news hit a couple of days later.
Britt McHenry Reveals She Has a Brain Tumor
At first, Fox Nation host Britt McHenry wanted to keep everything private. That changed once the news got leaked. "Things are being said without my consent," she said, and told the world her next battle moving forward.
McHenry, who started as a Fox News contributor in 2018 before her role on the Fox Nation streaming service, has a brain tumor and will require surgery.
"I have a brain tumor. I'm with an amazing medical team and surgery is imminent. Thank you for continued support and understanding at this time."
Since her announcement, she has been flooded with support. The View co-host Meghan McCain — the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain shared a message.
"Sending love and strength Brit," she wrote. "Please let me know if there's anything we can do."
So did SportsCenter anchor Kevin Negandhi, ESPN NFL Nation reporter Jenna Laine, and several other coworkers from ESPN.
No matter of what's happened in the past, everybody should now be cheering for Britt McHenry to get better.
