Cuomo’s Girlfriend, Sandra Lee, Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Cuomo’s Girlfriend, Sandra Lee, Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

On Tuesday, May 12, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s girlfriend and Food Network star Sandra Lee announced that she has breast cancer and will undergo surgery to have both breasts removed.

48-year-old Lee said she found out about the cancer late last month. She had a cancerous lump removed and will have more extensive surgery.

Her surgery was originally scheduled for last week, but it had to be postponed to this week due to an upper respiratory infection. On Wednesday, May 13, Lee said in a Twitter message that her doctors decided it would be best to delay the double mastectomy until early next week; the procedure had been scheduled for Thursday, May 21st.

A routine mammogram detected the cancer. Lee said she decided to go public about her illness to encourage other women to get screened for breast cancer.

"If it saves one person, and makes one more person go get a mammogram, and if they're sitting down right now watching this, don't watch this TV," she said on "Good Morning America."

"Go pick your phone up," Lee said, "and call your doctor and get your rear end in there and get a mammogram right now."

Lee -- a television chef, cookbook author and magazine publisher -- is the live-in girlfriend of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. He says he will take time off to support Lee after her surgery, the AP reported.

Early detection of the cancer "could very well have saved Sandy's life," Cuomo told reporters at an event on Long Island.

"It's not easy to talk about this operation and the recovery and have everyone know. But she thought she could do some good," he said. "She wants to help people. She wants to make the world better, and that's where she always goes. I've been with her for 10 years and that's been a constant."
