Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry says she will need surgery for brain tumor

Former ESPN reporter Brett McHenry announced Thursday that she has a brain tumor and will need surgery.

McHenry, who currently works as a Fox News contributor and on the Fox Nation streaming service, worked at ESPN for three years until she lost her job during the sports network’s major layoffs in 2017. That year’s NFL draft was her last assignment there.

"I was trying to keep this relatively private. But as usual, things are being said without my consent," she said on her Twitter account.

"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."

McHenry, 33, had been tweeting about her health during the week.

Monday, she said she was going to get an MRI the following day on her neck and brain and was "pretty nervous" about it.

Tuesday, she said she got good and bad news.

"Please I can’t stress enough, make your check-ups," she tweeted. "Get an MRI early. It could have saved me."

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 ??.

Please I can’t stress enough, make your check-ups. Get an MRI early. It could have saved me.
