Former 'GMA' Host Joan Lunden Diagnosed with Breast Cancer

Longtime host of Good Morning America Joan Lunden appeared on the morning show today (June 24) to reveal she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The 63-year-old newswoman explained to the audience that she was diagnosed with “the aggressive kind” of breast cancer and found it through an ultrasound after it did not show up on a mammogram. She will begin treatment shortly.

“I sat there stunned – how could this be? I considered myself fit and healthy, I get checked faithfully every year and I didn’t have a history of breast cancer in my family. But of course after covering many stories about breast cancer over the years, I knew that none of us are exempt,” Joan published on her blog.

We send our love to Joan and her family and friends during this time.

I remember watching her and Charlie Gibson on TV before I went to school while growing up in the mid 80′s. I always thought she had good chemistry with Gibson and they were together for many years. Hopefully she can overcome this and get better.

Seems as if everyone is getting breast cancer. I am a firm believer it is caused by deodorants.

I pray she is healed and makes a full recovery and lives a long healthy happy life! So scary.

Does anyone know what prompted the ultrasound? I saw the interview on GMA this morning and she didn’t say. She did say it didn’t show up on the mammogram but didn’t fill in the details as to why she was then given an ultrasound.
