News Anchor Did Not Want To Get A Mammogram On Live TV. It's A Really Good Thing She Did
November 13, 2013
Amy Robach, a reporter for 'Good Morning America', was hesitant about getting a mammogram on live television. Her producers urged her to do it, not just for her, but to inspire others who might be at risk.
She finally agreed to make room in her very busy schedule, and it's a really good thing she did. The mammogram revealed that Amy, a young mother with two children of her own, had breast cancer.
Luckily, she caught the disease early enough to fight it and will undergo surgery this week to remove it.
Amy is grateful for her colleagues who pushed her to get tested.
"Thank God you did," Amy told fellow news anchor, Robin Roberts. "I had cancer the whole time we were sitting in that office, and I said, 'I don't have any connection to that disease.'"
Amy hoped that the mammogram segment on live television would save someone's life watching the show. Who knew it would be her own.
