Christiane Amanpour Is Undergoing Her Final Chemotherapy Session

Christiane Amanpour is on the long road back to good health after revealing in June that she's been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The famed journalist told Good Morning America on Wednesday that she will be undergoing her final round of chemotherapy on Thursday. “Tomorrow is my last session after 18 weeks,” the CNN anchor said. She went on to call the whole process “grueling, fatiguing, tiring, and emotionally wearing as well, not to mention physically and can be scary.” But she added that she's been “so lucky” to receive some of the best cancer treatment available, which included stints at The Royal Marsden in London, the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. She also thanked all the people who have taken care of her during this difficult time, saying, “Two unbelievable women, a surgeon and [an] oncologist who looked after me, the incredible support of my friends, my family, my colleagues, my bosses — and that has carried me through.”

CNN’s Christiane Amanpour: Early Cancer Detection Has Saved My Life

Veteran CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour has an update four months after she revealed her ovarian cancer diagnosis—and it’s good news. Appearing on Good Morning America on Wednesday, the network’s chief international anchor said she’ll have her final chemo treatment tomorrow after 18 weeks. She said the treatment has been “grueling, fatiguing, tiring, and emotionally wearing,” but added: “I have been so lucky.” She paid tribute to her medical team, friends, and family, but said the most important factor in her positive outcome was catching the disease early. Amanpour explained: “I wouldn’t be swayed when I felt a pain that was unusual and I pursued it to the very end of getting my very first ultrasound which is the benchmark for then having a baseline to know whether you’ve caught it early in time and, therefore, cure it—and I use that word advisedly—or not. And whether then you’re left to manage it and try to deal with it in the best way possible.” She added: “I was in the first case.”
