Fox Nation host Britt McHenry said Thursday she is getting treatment for a brain tumor. 

“I was trying to keep this relatively private. But as usual, things are being said without my consent,” McHenry tweeted Thursday. 

“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,” she said.
