On October 1st, Amy Robach set a positive example for all women by having a mammogram on the air on Good Morning America, and it turns out it may have saved her life.
The 40-year-old correspondent, married to Melrose Place hunk Andrew Shue, told viewers today (November 11) that after the scan she learned she has breast cancer.
Amy explained to Robin Roberts, I was a little reluctant at first. Im 40, Im the age and Ive been putting it off.
“It”s still hard for me to say the words out loud. I have breast cancer. Telling my children was the toughest part. But that”s when you get strong, because you have to be strong for other people.”
Given her diagnosis, Robach shared, I have decided to have a bilateral mastectomy. I”m so grateful that I got the mammogram that day. Robin”s words still echo inside of me “If I got the mammogram on-air and saved one life then it”s all worth it” she had said. It never occurred to me that that life would be mine.
