ABC’s Robach has breast cancer, will have double masectomy


Published:

NEW YORK – ABC News correspondent Amy Robach says she has breast cancer, a month after she was given a mammogram on the air for a “Good Morning America” story.

Robach said Monday she’ll have both breasts surgically removed Thursday.

She was asked by producers to have the mammogram for a story because she was 40, an age where women are encouraged to be more vigilant checking for breast cancer. She said a doctor told her the mammogram saved her life.

Robach was a frequent fill-in on ABC’s morning show while Robin Roberts was fighting a serious blood and bone marrow disease.
