Cancer Patient Names His Tumor "Michigan"

Are you proud today that you've beaten Michigan?"
"Oh yes! Because Michigan sucks."

 - Troy and Grant Reed

An Ohio tween battling cancer is celebrating this morning after beating "Michigan" - that's the name he gave his brain tumor when he was diagnosed two years ago.

12 year old Grant Reed is a diehard Buckeye fan.

He despises the Wolverines just as much as he does cancer, so this was his way to stay focused and beat the disease.

Grant had his final chemo treatment last Friday.

He turns 13 next month, and the prognosis for him looks good.
