'GMA' Amy Robach faces 4 months of chemo after double mastectomy

"Good Morning America's" Amy Robach appeared on the ABC morning news program Thursday after having a double mastectomy. Robach, 40, said she felt great, but reminded everyone that she's only completed the first step in her fight against cancer. The journalist now faces four months of chemotherapy.

Us Weekly recapped the Dec. 5 segment on "GMA." Robach said although she feels good physically, "mentally, it's another challenge because that was phase one."

Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer when she had a live exam on a "GMA" in October. It was learned during her double mastectomy that the cancer had spread to the sentinel lymph node, which are the first few lymph nodes where a tumor drains.

"That was the devastating news to me," Robach said. "When I woke up, the first question I asked was, 'Did it spread to my lymph nodes?,' because that's the difference between chemo and no chemo."

The journalist begins her four-month chemo Dec. 16. She'll be leaning on "GMA" co-anchor, Robin Roberts, who has famously battled breast cancer and having a bone marrow transplant.

"You give me strength, Robin, because it is important to get up and have something to do each day, even if you don't feel great," Robach said. "Some people have it harder than I do so I will take it hour by hour."
