Thankfully Sandra Lee is a stickler for routine mammograms, otherwise her doctors could've detected the breast cancer a little too late.
The celebrity chef opened up on Tuesday morning to Good Morning America and revealed she was shocked after hearing the cancer news:
"Life can turn on a dime."
About two months after being diagnosed with cancer in her right breast, Sandra shared she will be undergoing a double mastectomy to avoid going through radiation.

Rita Wilson Was Recently Diagnosed With Breast Cancer, Underwent Double Mastectomy & Reconstructive Surgery
Wow. This is news we never want to hear.
Rita Wilson, actress and wife of Tom Hanks, has revealed she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. She has also already undergone reconstructive surgery.
In revealing the news, she explained in a statement to People:
Angelina Jolie is an incredibly strong woman.
Just two years after Angelina underwent a preventive double mastectomy, the actress recently had her ovaries removed to avoid the possibility of ovarian cancer.
Sadly, ovarian cancer is what killed the humanitarian's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, in 2007. At the time of Marcheline's death, she was 49 — just ten years older than Angie is now.
Jolie made the difficult decision, which will set her into early menopause, after a blood test detected what could have been the early markers of cancer.

Comedian Tig Notaro Performed Topless To Show Off Double Mastectomy Scars… And Was Hospitalized For Medical Emergency Just Days Later
Have you heard of stand-up comedian Tig Notaro?
She's one seriously funny woman who once did a stand-up comedy show the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer!
Tig is one of the bravest, strongest women we've ever heard of. She did something most people literally have nightmares about: went up on stage and forgot her underwear. On purpose!!
Tig performed topless at Town Hall in NYC just last Thursday.
It wasn't just brave, it was beyond that. It was a statement. Tig had a double mastectomy to treat her cancer and never had reconstructive surgery.
