On-air mammogram finds cancer

On Good Morning America Monday, ABC's Amy Robach had some tough news to share.

Six weeks after undergoing an on-air mammogram during the breast cancer awareness show, Robach learned she had breast cancer.

Doctors say that mammogram saved her life.

"I started thinking wow, if I've put it off, how many other people have put it off as well.  I went in to see Robin and she said you know what Amy if one life is saved because of early detection, it’s all worth it," said Robach.

This week Robach will be undergoing a bilateral mastectomy and then doctors will map out a treatment plan for her from there.
