About three weeks after being diagnosed with breast cancer, Amy Robach posted an open letter to fans on the Good Morning America website yesterday.
The reporter unfortunately said physicians have found a second malignancy, but added that her "prognosis is good" and she remains in positive spirits overall.
"Physically and emotionally I have been through the ringer, but I am emerging on the other side so much stronger. I have a greater appreciation for life, for health and for how such simple acts of kindness can be so incredibly powerful," the 40-year-old wrote.
"I am looking through a different lens now…and I am thankful for that as well. There was my life before October 30th and now my life after."
Robach, the wife of actor Andrew Shue, actually found out about the lump in her breast via an ABC-sponsored mammogram and hopes to return to work on December 2.
"My cancer had spread to my sentinel lymph node, but not beyond, so I will have more treatments ahead of me, but none that will take me out of work," she says.
Amy then concluded her note with a message to supporters.
"I couldn't be more excited to get back to work," she wrote. "Your support and love has made this all an experience that has given me the strength to fight the fear and hopefully help others do the same in the days/weeks/years to come!"
We wish Robach nothing but the best.
