ESPN SportsCenter reporter Shelley Smith announced Wednesday she has breast cancer, declaring via Twitter, "I am strong and positive as I fight this."
Smith first began working for the sports network in 1993; she has also written for Sports Illustrated.
She made her announcement on the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
