Update: Amy Robach’s Breast Cancer Journey
News that correspondent Amy Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer recently made headlines. Her medical results came from an on-air mammogram she had done to support October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which made the story even more compelling. Robach publicly announced her diagnosis in November. Now she has written a post on ABC News to update her supporters.
To date, Robach has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy treatment. In the post, she revealed having a question she felt was shallow that dealt with whether her hair would fall out or not. The doctors informed her that while she had a chance of keeping some of her hair, what was left would be dry and brittle.
"Waiting and watching my hair fall out made me once again feel so powerless and so I decided to take control," Robach wrote.
Now Robach is sporting a short pixie cut and a big smile. She went on "Good Morning America" to share the news and reveal her new hairstyle.
The news correspondent also remarked in the post that she wanted people in a similar situation to understand that they weren't going through their journey alone. Additionally, she called those women her "sisters" and said being brave is the way to feel powerful while living with cancer.
