      ABC's Amy Robach announces she is having a double mastectomy

      NEW YORK (AP) - ABC News correspondent Amy Robach says she has breast cancer, a month after she was given a mammogram on the air for a "Good Morning America" story.

      Robach said Monday she'll have both breasts surgically removed Thursday.

      She was asked by producers to have the mammogram for a story because she was 40, an age where women are encouraged to be more vigilant checking for breast cancer. She said a doctor told her the mammogram saved her life.

      Robach was a frequent fill-in on ABC's morning show while Robin Roberts was fighting a serious blood and bone marrow disease.
