Amy Robach is a television host on the show "Good Morning America" but for women throughout the United States she is a role model of courage and toughness. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2013 after taking the exam on national television and had a bilateral masectomy. Her breast cancer treatment involves chemotherapy and one of the side effects is that a person's hair may fall out. Many people would leave the public eye and stop working or start wearing baseball caps because of this disease but to her credit she used this unfortunate situation to act as a role model for other women as she has her entire career.
Amy Robach decided to cut her to "fight back" against cancer. What was so impressive about Amy Robach's decision is that she had the process captured on video and aired it on national television and in the process helped many other women who are also dealing with cancer.
She understands that she cannot control the loss of her hair until the chemotherapy is complete but by cutting her hair, something she treasured she regained control of the process and showed women throughout the United States that it is important for their own health and personal dignity that they fight even when the situation seems the most dire.
For many women their hair is very important to them as it is part of what defines them and is something they take great pride in and television host Amy Robach is no different. However, her courage in having her cut and videotaping the entire process including the tears that came from cutting her hair will no doubt serve as an inspiration to some other woman dealing with breast cancer and its effects.
Amy Robach usually reports on news stories that often inform the United States about the good things that people do for others. In 2014, Amy Robach has taken a personal tragedy and used it as a way to help others and for that she should be commended and recognized as a role model of courage and toughness for all women who are fighting the battle against breast cancer.
