ABC News’ Amy Robach: Second Tumor Found During Double Mastectomy
Amy Robach of ABC News was rocked by her recent breast cancer diagnosis following an on-air mammogram.
According to Deadline, she revealed in a memo to the “Good Morning America” staff that she underwent a double mastectomy after the diagnosis, during which another malignant tumor was found in her breast.
“My prognosis is good, I got very lucky finding the cancer through our ABC sponsored mammogram and I got lucky choosing an aggressive approach, bilateral mastectomy,” she wrote, “because while I surgery last week my surgeon found a second, undetected malignant tumor.”
The journalist added that she will continue treatment, as the cancer spread to her sentinel lymph node, but she will be back at work on Monday, December 2.
“Your support and love has made this all an experience that has given me the strength to fight the feat and hopefully help others do the same in the days/weeks/years to come,” she added (via Deadline).
Robach, who is married to “Melrose Place” star Andrew Shue, was first diagnosed a few weeks after receiving a mammogram on TV.
