Fox News Producer on Her Battle With Rare Type of Breast Cancer

Annie GoodmanFox News Associate Producer Annie Goodman spoke with Neil Cavuto yesterday about her ongoing fight against Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

The 10-year Fox News veteran, who’s produced for “Forbes on Fox” and “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” has been battling the rare form of breast cancer for two years, with it also spreading to her ovaries, lungs, and brain.

“I’m doing OK…feeling good this week,” Goodman said during her week off from chemotherapy. On Monday, she wrote a piece on her fight with cancer for Foxnews.com, and yesterday morning she helped ring the New York Stock Exchange opening bell along with the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation.

“It’s not easy to say out loud that I have stage four breast cancer, and I’m only 32 years old,” Goodman told Cavuto. Even though her cancer was caught early, she went through 16 rounds of chemotherapy, 25 rounds of radiation, a double mastectomy, and a hysterectomy.

After the triple negative breast cancer spread to her ovaries, Goodman started feeling off and confused, with loss of vision. She later learned she had six brain tumors. Today, doctors tell Annie her condition is treatable, with her latest surgery removing three brain tumors, followed by brain radiation and an upcoming round of chemotherapy.

“The hardest part of dealing with this is planning ahead…quite honestly, I’d love to make plans to do something in December, but quite honestly, I don’t know if I’m going to be alive.”
