Good Morning America’s Amy Robach discovered she had breast cancer after getting a mammogram on the show in October, leading her to have a double mastectomy.
Robach shared with her colleagues, “I got very lucky finding the cancer through our ABC sponsored mammogram and I got lucky choosing an aggressive approach, bilateral mastectomy, because while in surgery last week my surgeon found a second, undetected malignant tumor.”
While she still has to undergo more treatments, she plans to continue working and says the prognosis is good. “Physically and emotionally I have been through the ringer, but I am emerging on the other side so much stronger. I have a greater appreciation for life, for health and for how such simple acts of kindness can be so incredibly powerful. I am looking through a different lens now…and I am thankful for that as well. There was my life before October 30th and now my life after,” Robach says.
