LOCAL News Anchor Brings True Life Experience Forward and SHARES her STORY
Morning and Noon anchor and health correspondent for CBS affiliate in Salt Lake City. I was diagnosed with breast cancer after getting a mammogram for a TV story! Not many people can say their job saved their life! I had a lumpectomy on Dec. 19th, stage one, 1.3 centimeters, grade 3 invasive, triple negative. It’s a rare and aggressive cancer so I will also have chemo and radiation to kill any suckers in there! Chemo starts Friday, Jan. 20th…keep track of when I lose my hair, because I plan to do the news while all of this is going on! In Utah since 1991, worked in Yakima, WA before that. I come from a big, wonderful, Seattle-based family. I am very active with my kids, and in sports, volunteer work, and politics. I’m a mom of boy/girl twins, and wife of an incredible partner and dad. I’ve been in the TV news business since 1985, and LOVE it!
