Katie Couric shares health update amid breast cancer battle

“So when my breast radiologist Susan Drosman said, ‘Can you turn off your phone?’ I was like, ‘Uh-oh, what does that mean?’ And she said, “I think there’s something we really need to do a biopsy and I want to do it today.” So I was like, ‘Oh my god, you must be kidding me.'”

Couric said his doctor called the next day and told him his biopsy results came back as cancer. “I was quite amazed,” she added. “And I think those words, ‘it’s cancerous’ or ‘you have cancer’, stop you in your tracks. But she told me it was treatable, we had to have a plan. So, I went from shocked to not that shocked to relieved.”

The New York Times bestselling author – who shares girls Elijah31, and carolina (Carrie), 26, with her late ex-husband Jay Monahan– said she waited a few days to call and tell her daughters so she could process the news.
