Good Morning America anchor Amy Robach announced today that she has breast cancer and is going to have a double mastectomy. Amy didn't know she had breast cancer until she agreed to have a mammogram live on the air last month. She says that even though she is 40 she never has had a mammogram and kept putting it off. If not for Good Morning America making the women take the tests on the air she says she would never have gone to visit a doctor until it was probably too late to treat her cancer.
Amy doesn't have any history of breast cancer in her family. She is married to Andrew Shue and has two children and three step-children. The entire family was on the show this morning.
