ABC’s TV host, Amy Robach had never expected she’d be diagnosed with breast cancer with the followed consequence of Menopause. She was 40 years old with an excellent health condition and no history of breast cancer in her family.

On November 11, 2013, Good Morning America’s host, Amy announced on air that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. As a cancer awareness promotion, Amy had done an on-air mammogram which showed the Stage 2 breast cancer.
Amy at first had no idea how to approach her daughters about it. Delivering the news to daughters Ava and Analise was difficult. But when she approached the girls, they gave their full support and helped Amy to go through eight phases of chemotherapy and a double mastectomy.
Amy’s eldest daughter Ava McIntosh even wrote a poem ‘Better’ for her to help her fight in the darkest hours.
Amy Robach’s battle with cancer didn’t stop her from working as she became determined in continuing her work each day because she didn’t want the breast cancer to take away one more thing from her.

Just after three years of marriage with her husband Andrew Shue, things got complicated and confusing as they were in the phase of building their relationship stronger. Even it was rough for some months, but her husband Andrew gave his full support. He helped her to be determined and contributed in Amy Robach’s battle with cancer.
In December, Robach started her chemotherapy sessions and the drugs infused in her system made her sick and caused hair fall and at times blew her memory. Amy wouldn’t be in her sharpest mode and would often be afraid if she’d slip something stupid from her mouth.
Her husband Andrew had written a sweet note and kept in her purse saying;
“I know you can do it, I know you are going to be amazing and I am so proud of it.”
While the anxiety was drooling around, Amy had forgotten about it and found it three days after. She spoke to her producer Kaitlyn who in shock replied that Amy had spoken it aloud three days ago.
Now cancer-free Amy has found her life more beautiful, cherishing every moment with her family and husband.
