Katie Couric reveals she was diagnosed with breast cancer

Source: NBC

Couric, 65, began her most recent Instagram post by sharing a startling statistic ó every two minutes, a woman is diagnosed with the disease in the United States.

"On June 21st, I became one of them," Couric wrote. "As we approach #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth, I wanted to share my personal story with you all and encourage you to get screened and understand that you may fall into a category of women who needs more than a mammogram."

Couric said her thoughts immediately went to other family members who had battled the disease, including her late husband Jay Monahan who died from colon cancer in 1998 at the age of 41.

"My mood quickly shifted from disbelief to resignation. Given my familyís history of cancer, why would I be spared? My reaction went from 'Why me?' to 'Why not me?'" she wrote.

My good friend's wife has had this awful disease for years but now it has come back big time.

I wish Ms. Couric well.

2. I'm recovering from breast reconstruction surgery right now

The surgery recovery has been painful but the results look great. I was very lucky in that they caught the cancer before it spread, but it was 12 centimeters across and I lost the right girl.

That said, this can happen to anybody. Breast cancer or any kind of cancer does not run in my family. A routine mammogram caught it so I didnít have to have chemotherapy or radiation.

Donít miss your annual exams, folks!
