“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.”
