SHARE Sue’s Morning Stretch: ABC’s Amy Robach reveals she has breast cancer

Cooking broccoli, fake bangs and stunning news from Amy Robach of ABC. That’s what caught my attention on the morning TV talk shows:

  • On Oct. 1 during a breast cancer awareness segment, Amy Robach had a mammogram on the air at “GMA.” First time the show ever did one live on air. (Actual mammogram occurred in a mobile van.) Said that day if she helped save one life it would be worth it. That mammogram discovered that Robach, who is 40 and has no family history, has breast cancer. She will have surgery Nov. 14, not determined yet if she will have chemo or radiation treatment. Said hardest part has been telling her children and grandmother, who is not in good health. Robach’s husband is Andrew Shue (known for his role on “Melrose Place”).
  • Over on “Good Day Chicago” there was word on new study from the University of Illinois on broccoli. The cruciferous vegetable gets big props for its cancer-fighting properties. But how the broccoli is prepared is crucial. No boiling or — everyone’s shortcut — zapping it in the microwave. The research showed broccoli should be steamed four minutes to get the max of its nutrients. Four minutes isn’t much time, so I’d make sure it was chopped so the stalks aren’t too thick.
  • I want some! In a segment from George The Salon on holiday hair, “You & Me This Morning” showed the most realistic fake bangs I’ve ever seen. (My real, half-the-forehead variety ain’t cutting it.) You can get them at George The Salon.
  • A little personal pep talk will keep you working out longer, a new study shows, according to “Good Morning America.” Turns out it’s not your muscles that give out first when working out, it’s your mind. So, next time you’re running and want to quit, tell yourself, “You’re Doing Great,” “Keep Going” and see what happens.
