“The doctors say I graduate today,” said the “Good Morning America” anchor
“Good Morning America” news anchor Amy Robach says she has finished the final round of chemotherapy to treat breast cancer she discovered in a mammogram for a “GMA” segment.
“Today marks my eighth and final round of chemotherapy,” Robach, 40, said in a taped piece that aired Friday. “This is my final treatment. The doctors say I graduate today.”
The treatment was Thursday.
“I decided to have most of my medical moments remain private, but this one I wanted to share,” she said. “This is a huge milestone for me and for anyone else who has battled cancer, and I join the ranks of 2.8 million U.S. women who are breast cancer survivors.”
Robach said in November that she had been diagnosed after undergoing a mammogram live on the air to encourage breast cancer screenings. She said the mammogram saved her life, and underwent a bilateral mastectomy.
Robach said Friday that the end of her chemo sent a message that “after dark, there is light.”
