Amy Robach Cut Her Hair to ‘Take Control’ of Cancer

Amy Robach's New HaircutABC News correspondent Amy Robach, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy as she fights breast cancer, debuted a new short haircut on “Good Morning America” this morning. Robach noticed her hair was falling out and decided to preemptively cut it to “take control,” she writes on the “GMA” website:

Waiting and watching my hair fall out made me once again feel so powerless and so I decided to take control.  I made my appointment and then after receiving so many letters, cards, emails and tweets from women who were in my exact same position, I decided to record the cut. I wanted other women to know they are not alone.  I wanted my sisters to know that being brave is the only way to live with cancer… and today I feel powerful.

Robach debuted her new haircut and shared an update on her health on “GMA” this morning. Watch after the jump.
