A 12-year-old cancer patient who is a die-hard Ohio State fan came up with a unique way to motivate himself to fight the disease he was diagnosed with two years ago. Grant Reed named his brain tumor “Michigan.”
On Friday, Grant beat Michigan by undergoing his final chemotherapy treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.
According to NBC 4, Grant’s parents Troy and Denise met when they were both members of the Ohio State University Marching Band in college. Their love for the Buckeyes and hatred for the Wolverines rubbed off on their children, and the rivalry was used to help Grant battle cancer. When asked if he was proud to have beaten Michigan, Grant gave a classic response.
