Samantha Harris' cancer has spread

By Sadie Gennis,

Samantha Harris, who underwent a double mastectomy in May, may have to undergo chemo after discovering her cancer has spread.

The former Dancing with the Stars co-host told People, "When I came to in recovery, my surgeon was standing over me with a look of sadness and told me that he had to take out all of my lymph nodes."

Harris detected a lump in her right breast during a self-examination last fall. A few months later, she went to a breast cancer specialist and was diagnosed with breast cancer. The TV personality then made the choice to undergo a double mastectomy.

But during the procedure, doctors discovered that the cancer spread beyond Harris' breasts and they were forced to do further testing. "A few days later I got some good news. Thankfully, only one node was positive. Unfortunately, that usually means chemo," Harris explained.

"I am scared by the prospect of chemo, but I know so many inspiring women who have gone through it and, as they told me, 'rocked it," she continued. "If I need it, I will take a deep breath and readjust my focus."

Harris, 40, added: "Stay positive. When life deals you lemons, you gotta make lemonade!"
