Christiane Amanpour, the chief international anchor for CNN, announced Monday she’s been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

 

Christiane Amanpour, 63 announced Monday at the beginning  of her daily TV program she has  ovarian cancer. She took the time to think about others and stated that ovarian cancer affects “millions of women around the world.” “I’m telling you this in the interest of transparency, but in truth really mostly as a shoutout to early diagnoses,” Amanpour said on CNN International.

“I’ve had successful major surgery to remove it, and I’m now undergoing several months of chemotherapy for the very best possible long-term prognosis, and I’m confident,” Amanpour said, according to a story on CNN’s website.

Amanpour wanted to “urge women to educate themselves on this disease, to get all the regular screenings and scans that you can. To always listen to your bodies. And of course, to ensure that your legitimate medical concerns are not dismissed or diminished.”

Based in London, Christiane Amanpour has been with CNN for 37 years reporting about world issues and politics.

She will be going through chemotherapy and still plans to  appear on her show Mondays through Wednesdays. She will be taking time off for three weeks and the end of June.

Amanpour, 63, noted that ovarian cancer affects “millions of women around the world.”

“Ovarian cancer is really an umbrella term since most cancer linked to the ovary starts in the fallopian tubes and can develop in several areas surrounding the ovaries. On average, women have a 1.3 percent chance of acquiring ovarian cancer, yet it is still fairly rare with more than 22,500 cases per year, according to the National Cancer Institute” .Source Eat This Not That

Amanpour, received the International Academy’s 2019 Directorate Emmy® Award. “My career has not focused on the destination but rather on the journey. It’s one that’s led me to the firm belief that we must stand up for the truth. I am honored by this award, as I continue my work to always be truthful not neutral.” said Christiane Amanpour: Source
