ABC's Amy Robach Has Breast Cancer, Will Undergo Double Mastectomy

ABC Reporter: I Have Breast Cancer

ABC correspondent Amy Robach announced on Monday morning that she has breast cancer and will undergo a double mastectomy.

Speaking on "Good Morning America," Robach called it "the diagnosis that's still hard for me to say out loud."

In a twist of fate, her diagnosis was revealed only after she reluctantly underwent a mammogram on a recent episode of "GMA." Robach said she had not wanted to get the screening, but that Robin Roberts—herself a breast cancer survivor—pushed her to do so.

"Thank God you did," she told Roberts. "I had cancer the whole time we were sitting in that office, and I said, I don't have any connection to that disease."

"You saved my life," she added.

"YOU saved your life, Amy," Roberts replied.
