CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Reveals She Is Being Treated For Ovarian Cancer

Amanpour explained she recently had surgery for cancer and will undergo chemotherapy for a number of weeks.

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour told viewers Monday that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has undergone treatment.

Speaking from her home studio in London, she explained the reason for her four-week hiatus, calling it a “bit of a roller coaster” when she received her diagnosis. She explained she recently had surgery for cancer and will undergo chemotherapy for a number of weeks.

“I’ve had successful major surgery to remove it, and I’m now undergoing several months of chemotherapy for the very best possible long-term prognosis, and I’m confident,” she said. “I’m also fortunate to have health insurance through work and incredible doctors who are treating me.”

She urged women to get regular screenings and to “ensure that your legitimate medical concerns are not dismissed or diminished.”

Amanpour has been a staple in journalism both at CNN and ABC News. The award-winning journalist has covered humanitarian crises across the globe, including the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
