ABC correspondent Amy Robach said Monday that she has breast cancer and will undergo a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery this week.

Her announcement comes a month after she underwent a mammogram for a story on "Good Morning America." The 40-year-old mother of two was chosen for the assignment because she's at an age when it's recommended that women regularly check for breast cancer, the Associated Press reported.

A few weeks after the mammogram, Robach learned she had breast cancer. Following Thursday's surgery, she will find out what further treatment she may require.

Robach said she was initially reluctant to have the public mammogram, but decided to do it after "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts said it would be worth it if the story saved one life, AP reported.

"It never occurred to me that life would be mine," Robach said.
