'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' stars Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are snapped on the red carpet at the New York premiere held at the Beacon Theatre. The comediennes are new additions to the cast which also sees the return of the old news team led by Will Ferrell.
The Good Morning America host announced that she is on the mend and planning her return.
It’s good news for Amy Robach, who announced her pending return to Good Morning America after undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The GMA host discovered that she had the disease during what was supposed to be a routine mammogram for a segment on the show.
Congratulations to Robach for the (mostly) good news.
According to the LA Times, Robach sent an email to her ABC colleagues on Friday thanking them for the support and announcing that she is already on the mend. The account of her treatment included an unpleasant, but necessary procedure, as Robach announced that she had undergone a bilateral mastectomy. She wrote, "While in surgery last week my surgeon found a second, undetected malignant tumor. No MRI, no mammogram, no sonogram had found it. ... It was only through the mastectomy that she discovered it."
Amy Robach revealed her prognosis is good after undergoing a duble mastectomy but doctors found a second tumour during surgery.
Earlier this month (Nov 11th) Amy Robach made the brave decision to announce her diagnosis of breast cancer live on 'Good Morning America'. The diagnosis only came about after Robach, who admitted to avoiding mammogram screening for quite some time, finally got tested live on air due to Breast Cancer Awareness month was this past October.
Robach was diagnosed this past October
It is a good job she did! The results came back and discovered that the 40 year-old had a tumour in her breast.

The morning TV presenter now plans to have a double mastectomy
Amy Robach received a routine mammogram live on Good Morning America last month as part of a segment aimed at promoting women's health and encouraging regular health checks. Meant to help women across America, Robach may have inadvertently saved her own life, as the results from mammogram she received on air have revealed that the presenter is suffering from breast cancer.
On Monday's (11 Nov.) edition of GMA, the presenter revealed the shocking news delivered in her test results and has said that she now plans to have a double mastectomy, with the hopes that it will rid her of the disease. She went on to reveal (according to TV Guide) that she was initially reluctant to have the on-air mammogram when producers first pitched her the idea, but they eventually managed to talk her into it, and the procedure was undertaken on 1 October.
"That day, when I was asked to do something I really didn't want to do, something I had put off for more than a year, I had no way of knowing that I was in a life-or-death situation," a post from her personal blog reads. "Sitting in that kitchen with Marie Monville, I had cancer and didn't know it. In fact, I would have considered it virtually impossible that I would have cancer. I work out, I eat right, I take care of myself and I have very little family history; in fact, all of my grandparents are still alive."
Amy Robach revealed she has breast cancer on live television and will undergo a double mastectomy.
The 40 year-old revealed live on air that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Robach had been avoiding a mammogram screening for quite some time, but as Breast Cancer Awareness month was this past October, the news reporter underwent the treatment live on television.
Unbeknown to her and the viewing public, it would be the best decision she could have made.
