In December of 2022, Ohio State offensive lineman Avery Henry revealed to the public that he was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. Now after a long battle he was able to announce through his Twitter that he is cancer free after months of chemotherapy treatment at The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute at Ohio State.
Avery Henry was a part of the 2022 Ohio State recruiting class and came out of St. Clairsville High School as a three star recruit. He was redshirted as a freshman this past season and was forced to take a hiatus from competition after his diagnosis, but does maintain four-years of eligibility.
Henry was able to celebrate with his teammates at the James Cancer Hospital where he visited with doctors and other patients. He was joined by Kyle McCord, Tegra Tshabola, Donovan Jackson, Josh Fryar and Carson Hinzman. During his visit he encouraged other cancer patients to keep fighting.
We here at Believeland Media would like to extend our congratulations to Henry on winning his battle and wish him the best of luck as he continues his recovery and we look forward to seeing him fight to get back onto the field at Ohio State.
