Katie said that her family had a history of cancer and that there was no way she would be spared. She said that she FaceTimed both of her girls four days after she announced her illness. She added that when she delivered them the news, their expressions froze in amazement and horror before they started weeping.

While comforting them, she said that she was also trying to persuade herself that she would be alright. Katie continued:

“They’d already lost one of their parents. The thought of losing another seemed incomprehensible.”

She also asked that everyone get a mammogram every year. The anchor went on to say that she was six months late and was terrified of what would have occurred if she had waited a little longer. She finished by asking everyone whether they needed any more screening.
