Samantha Harris reveals that later this month she will undergo surgery for a double mastectomy to treat breast cancer.
In a routine self-examination last fall, Harris, 40, detected a lump in her right breast. She had a clean mammogram shortly before but something still didn’t feel right, so she saw a breast cancer specialist months later.
A needle biopsy and later lumpectomy led to a diagnosis that Harris did not expect: breast cancer.
“It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” the former Dancing with the Stars co-host says of the news.
