Recently there was an Ohio State victory that even Michigan fans can celebrate.

Grant Reed, a 12-year-old die-hard Ohio State fan from Bellville, Ohio, was diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago. He and his family nicknamed it "Michigan." Grant comes from a big Buckeyes family -- his parents, Troy and Denise, met in the marching band at Ohio State.

The nickname caught on, and Troy Reed said that when Ohio State coach Urban Meyer visited Reed in December he was amused by the name.

Grant recently finished chemotherapy, and his father says the family remains cautiously optimistic about the future.

"We've beaten Michigan for the short term," Troy told NBC4, "but like any rival, there's a chance it can come back."

Before leaving Nationwide Children's Hospital, Grant and his brother, Collin, donated two wagons to the hospital. And, of course, there was one qualification for the gifts.

"We did make the stipulation," Troy said"[The wagons] had to say 'Beat Michigan' on it,"
