Samantha Harris endures Double Mastectomy

Still recuperating from her double mastectomy, Samantha Harris shares how she braved the procedure. The former “Dancing with the Stars” host  said that last month  she was diagnosed with breast cancer and now she has undergone the “grueling” surgery. She wrote on May 20, “Made it thru grueling double mastectomy #surgery. Thanks to all of my amazing surgical team.”

“Like my ‘art’ b4 heading in?!” Harris added, referring to a selfie which is attached to the post. In the photo, she can be seen lying on what appeared to be her hospital bed. The star appeared to be very tired but somehow  smiled a bit for the selfie.

Harris said  that she had breast cancer in early April. In an interview with ET’s Brooke Anderson, the mother of two shared  her reaction when the doctors informed her about the diagnosis.

“The realization sort of overtook me, my eyes started to well up from tears when I was trying to keep myself calm because I thought the most important thing … was that I needed to focus and listen to what they were saying … and make sure I heard the words that they were telling me because there is a lot of information,” she recalled.

“No matter how positive of a diagnosis as I have, it doesn’t keep the demons of fear from taking over your mind and your thought process and thinking about the girls and thinking about [how] my dad wasn’t able to walk me down the aisle. I will be here to plan my daughters weddings and they better like the dress I pick.”
