GETTYBY CHARLI PENN ·
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and TV host and personality Ananda Lewis revealed she has been battling stage 3 breast cancer for the last two years. Now she’s sharing her story and some of the mistakes she felt she made as a cautionary tale for other women.
Lewis, 47, shared the news in a video message on Instagram yesterday. She began with an apology to any of her friends and family members who might be hurt over the fact she’s chosen to speak about her diagnosis publicly first.
“For me it was important to come to you and admit where I went wrong with this, because it could help you or someone you know,” said Lewis. “This is an ongoing journey for me.”
Check out her story below:
I am a woman who is in my early 40’s. I will be scheduling my mammogram this month. I thank Ananda for sharing her story and I hope her health is restored.
