Amy Robach Finished With Chemo TreatmentsBy: Kimberly Ripley - April 25, 2014
Amy Robach is finished with her chemo treatments. The Good Morning America anchor celebrated her ‘graduation’ from chemotherapy on Friday. Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer following an on-air mammogram.
“I join the ranks of 2.8 million women who are breast-cancer survivors,” she said in a clip that was filmed while she had her very last chemo treatment.
“And I plan on living each day to the very fullest, thankful and grateful, and encouraging so many women out there who are still in the thick of it, who have yet to fight this fight, that you can do it. You can get through this, one step at a time. And I am there for you, I am there with you.”
“With my eighth and final chemo complete, I will start on a new journey, helping raise awareness about early detection, and letting women everywhere know, ‘You can kick cancer’s butt!'” she added.
As she returned from the clip to the GMA live broadcast, Amy shared a small tidbit of information about her comment.
“I actually wanted to say another word, but they wouldn’t let me. ‘You can kick cancer’s bleeeep!'” she said.
Amy Robach debuted a new hairstyle during her chemotherapy treatments several weeks back, as seen in the video clip shared above. She not only rocks the new ‘do, but has also inspired women all over the country with her amazing attitude–from the shock of her cancer diagnosis to her graduation from chemotherapy.
Robach shared this set of photos during her last chemotherapy session on Thursday.
Congratulations to Amy Robach on this momentous milestone, and may the end of her chemo treatments represent the beginning of a long life of abundant good health.
