Former “Good Morning America” co-host Joan Lunden returned to the ABC News morning show Tuesday to reveal she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.


Lunden, who was the longest serving “GMA” co-host in the show’s history — her run lasted from 1980 to 1997 — broke the news to Robin Roberts on TV and simultaneously on Twitter and Facebook.


“I have covered many stories about breast cancer over the years but I never actually thought this would happen to me,” Lunden wrote on Facebook.


“I have shaped my career around health & wellness advocacy so it seemed natural to share my story. I’ve started chemotherapy and while I don’t know how I’ll look and feel down the road, I am assuming the best because that is how I live my life,” she wrote.


Roberts and “GMA” news anchor, Amy Robach, have also recently been treated for breast cancer.


Lunden’s treatment will include a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation and she is expected to make a full recovery.
