GMA Coanchor Robin Roberts Has Breast Cancer

Good Morning America coanchor Robin Roberts, 46, has announced that she has early stage breast cancer. She wrote on the website:

"It all started a few weeks ago. We had gotten the news that our dear colleague and friend Joel Siegel had passed away and we began preparing for our special tribute show for him. I did a piece about Joel's courageous battle with cancer, reporting on the way my friend had lived his life and 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."

Today, she spoke with Diane Sawyer and said, "I will get up like everybody else, I will go to work, I'll say 'Good Morning America,' I will have my good days and bad days, so be kind to me on the message board when I've had my bad days and the hair goes."
