"In 2019, it's estimated more than 3,800 women in B.C. will be diagnosed with breast cancer. I am one of them."

When CTV News Vancouver anchor and Fraser Valley bureau chief Michele Brunoro was diagnosed, she did what she's done for much of her life: Started asking questions.

"What stage of cancer? What are the survival rates? Has it spread? The poor doctor. I must have exhausted her! I needed answers and this deadline was far more crucial than my usual rush to get a story on the six o’clock news," Michele wrote.

She braced herself for surgery, grappled with breaking the news to her children, and met with survivors. Now, she's sharing her journey with breast cancer.
