NEW YORK - Good Morning America’s Amy Robach announced on Friday’s show she has completed her final round of chemotherapy for breast cancer.

Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer in October after she underwent a mammogram on-air, a procedure that she now credits for saving her life.

"I decided to have most of my medical moments remain private, but this one I wanted to share," she told GMA. "This is a huge milestone for me and for anyone else who has battled cancer, and I join the ranks of 2.8 million U.S. women who are breast cancer survivors."

Robach said Friday her 20 weeks of chemo was an “uphill” battle and that some days were “much harder than others.”

Now that her treatment is now complete, the mother of two young daughters, said she plans to help raise awareness about early detection and help other women fighting breast cancer.

"I plan on living each day to the fullest, thankful and grateful, and encouraging so many women who are out there, who are still in the thick of it, who have yet to fight this fight, that you can do it, you can get through this one step a time," Robach said.

Last month, Robach, 41, was promoted to full-time anchor on Good Morning America, replacing former co-host Josh Elliot.
