Taking inspiration from Angelina Jolie, CNN's Zoraida Sambolin spoke up and announced that she too needed a mastectomy, and that she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer!
Here's what she originally announced:
"For a while I have been struggling because I was diagnosed with breast cancer about three weeks ago and I was trying to figure out how do I share this story, how do I tell the viewers that I'm going to be gone for a while, because I have chosen to have a double mastectomy. Angelina Jolie's story really hit home."
Now, after having had her mastectomy, we're getting a CNN update from Zoraida herself!
This is so fab — it sounds like she's really doing well, taking it all day-by-day! We can't even imagine having to go through this, but she's being such a badass about it!
