Amy Robach has drawn some strength from Robin Roberts as she stars chemo. The Good Morning America correspondent had struggled with Breast Cancer already, after that she found out she had to fight harder as she found out it spread to her lymphnodes and she now needs to begin chemotherapy. She known that her co work Roberts beat Cancer and she believes she can too.
“I saw Robin do it,” she says during an interview on “GMA,” confirming she will continue to work during her treatment. “You give me strength, Robin.”
Over Thanksgiving, Robach’s family went around the table saying what they were thankful for. That’s when she knew what she still was thankful for.
“Some people have it harder than I do, so I will take it hour by hour,” she says. “It’s good to know that you get to be thankful to be alive.”
Robach begins her chemotherapy on Dec, 1, 2013.
She’s learned that her story has encouraged others to go out and get mammograms, which she says she is grateful for. She has also learned her own lessons from this experience.
“What it forces you to do is live in the moment and I think that’s a good lesson for everyone,” Robach says. “There are days where if you really start to let your mind wander, it’s fairly devastating. But, you keep your head together. You come into work. You hug your friends and you’re thankful to be where you are with your family and the people who matter.”
