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.
McHenry, 33, had been tweeting about her health during the week.
Monday, she said she was going to get an MRI the following day on her neck and brain and was "pretty nervous" about it.
Tuesday, she said she got good and bad news.
"Please I can’t stress enough, make your check-ups," she tweeted. "Get an MRI early. It could have saved me."
