Amy Robach Discovers Breast Cancer

Amy_Robach_2013It’s pretty common for news anchors to undergo cancer screenings to encourage viewers to do the same — but it saved Amy Robach’s life.

The ABC News correspondent and anchor was asked by her producer to undergo a live television mammogram for “‘GMA’ Goes Pink” day, and reluctantly agreed, she said Monday. The Oct. 1 test resulted in a breast cancer diagnosis, and she will undergo a double mastectomy Thursday.

Robach, 40, said she never suspected she had cancer, but agreed to be tested because her producers and cancer survivor Robin Roberts convinced her it would save lives. It turns out to have saved at least one.
