There’s both a positive and a very negative aspect to this story. The positive is that Amy Robach, a pretty great morning news anchor over on Good Morning America, brought to the attention of a lot of women the importance of regular mammograms, after an on-air demonstration she agreed to after at first resisting the routine examination. The importance was highlighted ever further when Robach — who is healthy, eats well, exercises, and has little history of cancer — discovered from that on-air mammogram that she actually has breast cancer.

The routine examination led to further tests, which led to the diagnosis. Robach, who is married to Andrew Shue (yeah, the guy from Melrose Place) will treat the cancer aggressively with a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.

And because it’s always worth repeating: F*ck Cancer.
