Sandra Lee was diagnosed with breast cancer and is scheduled for a double mastectomy sometime this week.

During Tuesday morning’s “Good Morning America” interview, Sandra shared her story about finding out she had breast cancer. She had finished a photo shoot for People magazine right about the time she got the news over the phone. Even though she was “stunned,” she didn’t cry, she said. “My doctor called me a poster girl for mammography.”

“Life can turn on a dime,” the 48-year-old celebrity chef on Food Network told People in March when she was diagnosed with the cancer. Instead of radiation, she’s decided to opt for the mastectomy because she will “never want to go through this again.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Sandra Lee’s partner, promises to stay by her side. “This is about her feeling secure and loved,” the 57-year-old told People.
