A television chef and author who is in a longtime relationship with a high-profile politician has revealed that she has breast cancer. Reuters reports that Sandra Lee, the girlfriend of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, announced her diagnosis today.
Lee, 48, is scheduled to undergo a double mastectomy this week. She talked about her diagnosis during an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Lee said she has already had a lumpectomy, after the cancer was detected in its early stages when she had a mammogram in March.
Lee has hosted a number of Food Network shows, including “Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee.” She is the editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Magazine.
