News Reporter Victoria Price Learns She Has Cancer After Viewer Notices Symptom On-Air

A Florida news reporter is feeling incredibly grateful after a viewer noticed something on-air.

WFLA News’ Victoria Price revealed on social media on Thursday (July 23) that while she was covering coronavirus during her job, a viewer emailed her regarding a lump on her neck.

“As a journalist, it’s been full throttle since the pandemic began. Never-ending shifts in a never-ending news cycle. Adjusting to remote workflows and in my case, taking on a new investigative role. We were covering the most important health story in a century, but my own health was the farthest thing from my mind,” she wrote.

“Until a viewer emailed me last month. She saw a lump on my neck. Said it reminded her of her own. Hers was cancer. Turns out, mine is too.”

She said that she will now be undergoing surgery.

“Had I never received that email, I never would have called my doctor. The cancer would have continued to spread. It’s a scary and humbling thought. I will forever be grateful to the woman who went out of her way to email me, a total stranger. She had zero obligation to, but she did anyway.”

Jeopardy‘s Alex Trebek recently gave fans an update on his own cancer journey.
