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.
