It was supposed to be a minor event, virtually a PSA to remind women to undergo regular breast cancer checkups.
Ali Meyer, a reporter for Nexstar’s KFOR in Oklahoma City, received her first-ever mammogram during a Facebook Live broadcast for the station, a year ago.
“I had no concerns; no lumps; no family history; no reason at all to think that my baseline mammogram would turn my world upside down,” Meyer wrote in a recent story reflecting on the day.
The doctor conducting the exam told Meyer she had a cancerous tumor in her right breast.
Since then, she’s undergone treatment for her cancer, sharing her journey with viewers both on television and social media.
Last week marked a year since her diagnosis.
