ABC reporter discovers cancer after on-air mammogram

(WFLX) - ABC News correspondent Amy Robach says she has breast cancer. She learned this after she was given a mammogram on the air for a "Good Morning America" story.

Robach said she'll have both breasts surgically removed Thursday. She was asked by producers to have the mammogram for a story because she was 40, an age where women are encouraged to be more vigilant checking for breast cancer.

She said a doctor told her the mammogram saved her life.
