Samantha Harris - Samantha Harris helped by children

Samantha Harris' daughters have been ''helpers'' during her recovery from breast cancer.

The 40-year-old presenter - who has children Josselyn, six, and Hilary, three, with her husband Michael Hess - underwent a double mastectomy in May and says her kids have been ''really good'' throughout her ordeal.

She told E! News: ''They were both really good about it. They were helpers, they brought me things, they checked on me - and we just continually assured them that, 'Mommy's going to be in bed for a little bit, but then I'm going to be fine.' ''

The former 'Dancing with the Stars' host is now readying herself for a second stage of reconstructive surgery later this month.

She said: ''And I'm like, 'Let's go, let's do this thing!' ''

Samantha wasn't diagnosed with the disease for months after first finding a lump and despite her concerns being dismissed by doctors, she refused to ''take 'it's nothing' for an answer''.

Asked why she was so persistent, she said: ''The fact that it was still there after four months from finding it, this lump that I found -- clear mammogram, 11 days later found a lump.

''I thought, if I have to live with this lump, whatever it is, I need to know it's nothing.''
