As a popular host of “Good Morning America,” Amy Robach knows that when she talks, people stop and listen. Not many people have a talent like that, but this woman does, and she is doing great things with it. She is now using that voice to talk about breast cancer.
Amy is a cancer survivor herself, who underwent a bilateral mastectomy after being diagnosed with a 2-centimeter tumor in her right breast.
She gave a riveting keynote address at the 33rd annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference, where she criticized new U.S. Preventive Services Task Force guidelines that raised the recommended age for mammogram screening.
In this interview, Amy defends her decision to undergo a double mastectomy, despite her cancer being categorized as appearing isolated on ultrasound and other subsequent scans.
