Britt McHenry, a popular commentator on Fox News, is giving an update about her health.
McHenry revealed on Wednesday that she is going for brain surgery: “To EVERYONE reading this. Your kindness and words provided strength.”
The 33-year-old television personality previously revealed on Twitter that she has a brain tumour and will be undergoing surgery soon.
“I was trying to keep this relatively private,” she wrote. “But as usual, things are being said without my consent. I have a brain tumour. I’m with an amazing medical team and surgery is imminent. Thank you for continued support and understanding at this time.”
Prior to her sharing the news, she tweeted about getting an MRI for her neck and brain on Monday.
“Never had one before, pretty nervous,” she wrote at the time.
The following day she talked about being “overwhelmed” and pleaded for her followers to get checked out by doctors when they can.
“I had good and bad news today,” she wrote. “Overwhelmed by the support by friends and 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.”
McHenry is a commentator on Fox News’ 24/7 streaming service, Fox Nation. She is also a former ESPN reporter, having been featured on ‘Sportscenter, Outside the Lines’ and ‘NFL Live’.
She has received a number of well wishes after her tweet, including from ‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain.
“Sending love and strength Brit. Please let me know if there’s anything we can do,” McCain tweeted.
Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly also tweeted to McHenry, “Sending you much love and strength. We are all behind you.”
