Katie Couric has revealed her diagnosis of breast cancer.
The journalist announced the heartbreaking news via her Instagram Wednesday, September 27.
“Every two minutes, a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. On June 21st, I became one of them,” she wrote in the caption alongside a photo of her in a patient’s gown and disposable mask.
She further touched upon the reason for the revelation stating, “As we approach #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth, I wanted to share my personal story with you all and encourage you to get screened and understand that you may fall into a category of women who needs more than a mammogram.”
The 65-year-old presenter directed her followers to her website to read a more comprehensive essay on her diagnosis.
