Every good Ohio State Buckeyes fan wants to beat Michigan and for a 12-year-old cancer patient at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus did just that.

In May 2012, Grant Reed underwent a lengthy 16 1/2-hour surgery to have a brain tumor removed. Although the surgery was successful, he woke up without being able to move his left side or speak and had a serious vision problem.

Reed spent several weeks in the hospital but was released on Friday afternoon, after receiving his final chemotherapy treatment for cancer he nicknamed "Michigan". The theme for Reed's battle with cancer was "beat Michigan" and his father Troy even got a tattoo for the cause.

Reed's parents met as members of the Ohio State band and were engaged during a game in the 1994 season. The couple remain huge Buckeye fans and it has in turn rubbed off on son Grant.


The family plans to attend an Ohio State football game sometime during the upcoming season if Grant's health continues to improve.
