Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry tweets photo before surgery to remove brain tumor

Former ESPN reporter Britt McHenry tweeted a photo from her hospital room on Wednesday as she prepared for brain surgery.

McHenry, 33, revealed last week that a brain tumor was discovered during an MRI.

She had worked at ESPN from 2014 until she was part of the sports network's layoffs in 2017. She now works as a Fox News contributor, for the Fox Nation streaming service and Fox 5 DC in Washington.

"I’ll be out recovering but had to say THANK YOU to former bosses, colleagues & friends from ESPN. Class act people. To @fox5dc, Fox News colleagues & @FDRLST  for support," she tweeted, accompanied by a photo of her smiling from her hospital room. "To EVERYONE reading this. Your kindness & words provided strength. #Fight."

McHenry went on Instagram Tuesday to explain how the "golf ball-sized tumor" was discovered.

McHenry, who filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Fox News in December, said she went to a chiropractor, who recommended an MRI.

"Please know, I'm only 33, and if you are having consistent symptoms anywhere, it could be something more serious," she said.

She added: "It's scary to have your head cut open, but I'm in good hands, and I appreciate everyone who reached out."
