Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry, who currently works as a commentator for Fox Nation, revealed some tough news on Thursday. McHenry says she has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

McHenry, now 33 years old, joined ESPN back in 2014 and worked as a bureau reporter in Washington D.C. She was let go by the network in 2017 and landed with FOX.

McHenry revealed on Monday that she was getting an MRI for her neck and her brain. Tuesday, she revealed that she'd received "good and bad" news in the aftermath.

McHenry says that while she initially wanted to keep her diagnosis private, it leaked anyway. She took to Twitter to reveal the news. She says that surgery is "imminent." She did not reveal whether the tumor is benign or malignant.

McHenry is currently the host of a show on WTTG Fox 5 in Washington D.C. This past December, she was in the news after she filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox Nation and George Murdoch, a former coworker.

This is obviously a very serious and scary situation. Let's hope McHenry can make a full recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with her.
