COLUMBUS, Ohio (NBC/WCMH) - One cancer patient found a unique way to overcome his illness.
This Buckeye named his tumor "Michigan" -- Ohio State's biggest rival! When the bell at the hospital rings, its sound represents renewed life.
"We've heard it rung a few times," said Troy Reed, whose son Grant has overcome cancer. "There was always that thought of having him do it, and today we got to hear it."
"I'm just happy to be with them," said Grant.
On the 11th floor at Nationwide Children's, the bell awaits patients completing their final chemotherapy treatment. But Grant beat more than cancer.
"Are you proud today that you've beaten Michigan?" someone asked Grant.
"Oh yes! Because Michigan sucks," said Grant.
"Coach Meyer stopped in to Children's in December," said Grant's dad. "We explained the ‘Beat Michigan,' which he loved."
"He was tall and nice -- looked different in person," said Grant.
Grant turns 13 years old next month, and the prognosis looks good.
"We've beaten Michigan for the short-term, but like any rival, there's a chance it can come back," said Dad.
Grant will be back every three months to undergo an MRI. He suffered some complications from treatment, which affected his speech and mobility.
"I want to talk faster, I guess, walk faster," said Grant.
And before he left, Grant and his brother Collin donated two wagons for future patients at Children's -- part of the Buckeye way to pay it forward.
"We did make the stipulation: It does have to say ‘Beat Michigan' on it," said Dad.
"We both spent time in the hospital, so it'd just be a ‘Thanks' for taking care of both of us," said Grant.
