“Anyone who knows me is well aware I don’t seek public attention,” Torre told The Daily News. “And so when I received a diagnosis of cancer, my inclination was to keep it private. But if there’s any good to come out of all this, it’s the hope that sharing my story can spare others the pain of my experience.” Torre has worked at NY1 since 1992 and is a mother of two.
