On the heels of ABC News correspondent Amy Robach's revelation of her recent breast cancer diagnosis, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Dr. Kristi Funk and Zoraida Sambolin to offer their personal and professional perspectives.
"Prevention does not yet exist," said Funk, who is Angelina Jolie's doctor. "So early detection is our best defense against this disease, and our only chance at a cure."
Sambolin, a breast cancer survivor, said it was Jolie who gave her the courage to announce her own diagnosis:
"She allowed me to be able talk about this decision. I was really hesitant," admitted the co-anchor of CNN's Early Start. "She [Jolie] talked about sexuality, which really hit me hard, because I was struggling with that. I was embarrassed to be struggling with that, Piers, because I thought, 'my breasts, really, they shouldn't matter this much to me. I've had my kids, I've breast fed, they've served their function in life,' yet I really did struggle. And those words in particular really helped me talk about this. And it was really healing to be able to talk."
