    On Monday, “CNN News Central” anchor Sara Sidner announced she is undergoing treatment for stage 3 breast cancer.

    “I have never been sick a day of my life. I don’t smoke, I rarely drink. Breast cancer does not run in my family,” Sidner said on CNN’s air. “And yet here I am with stage 3 breast cancer. It is hard to say out loud.”

    Sidner says she is in her second month of chemotherapy and plans to undergo radiation and a double mastectomy.

    The prominent news anchor recently traveled to the Middle East to cover the ongoing fighting between Israel and Hamas and the social unrest the conflict has caused.

    “Seeing the kind of suffering going on where I was and seeing people still live through the worst thing that has ever happened to them with grace and kindness, I was blown away by their resilience,” she told People Magazine as part of an interview published Monday. “In some weird way, it helped me with my own perspective on what I am going to be facing.”
