Keep it Up Robin

Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts has undergone her first (hopefully last or one of very few) surgery to treat breast cancer - which she announced during a GMA segment on July 30:

"I did a piece about Joel's courageous battle with cancer...and [how he had] been such a successful advocate for the importance of early cancer screenings. That very night when I went to bed, I did a self breast exam and found something that women everywhere fear: I found a lump."

She continues, "I can't stress enough how important it is to get screened and checked for all cancers — and to do self breast exams. I am so blessed that I found this in the early stages and the prognosis is so promising."

Keep up the good fight Robin! But please stop printing the emails. Lotta trees going down for all that. ;) received word from a GMA rep late Friday saying, "Robin's surgery was very successful today. She has already left the hospital and is home resting. The tests following her surgery take some time to process, so when we have more information we will update you. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Robin at this time."
