Barbara Walters Shares Her Breast Cancer Scare

News Helpline | October, 11 2014

The legendary journalist Barbara Walters broke some big news at the Breast Cancer Research Symposium and Awards luncheon in New York City.

She talked about her personal battle with breast cancer!

Walters got up on stage, and said: "Some years back, I discovered a small lump in my breast. I had a lumpectomy. I hadn't talked about it. There was no reason to. There were other choices that were possible, this was mine. I told few people and I am fine, I've had no recurrence. I knew the advances that had been made in treating breast cancer, including lumpectomies when possible. I can remember when such treatments were not available. Research made my treatment possible."

The former 'The View' host was honored at the event, and she shared her award with the event's host, Amy Robach. Walters has openly spoken about cancer before as she has lost her sister to ovarian cancer. She chose to remove her own ovaries as a preventative measure.
