June 20, 2008—Hoda Kotb Appears on Women&Cancer cover, Summer 2008

As co-anchor of the Today Show’s fourth hour, as a Dateline NBC correspondent, and in her years of television reporting, Hoda Kotb has delivered many important stories. But it was the telling her most personal story that truly changed her life: in October 2007 Kotb revealed to the Today Show audience that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. In the cover feature devoted to Kotb’s story, she discusses her difficult decision to go public with her story, the passion for breast cancer advocacy that she now embraces, and her determination to not waste another day: “If you survive breast cancer,” Kotb says, “it could be the best thing that happened to you because suddenly you are empowered; because you have strength now; because you realize that your life has margins—it’s to be valued and not wasted.”

Other important topics and features included in the summer issue include: new cancer vaccines; advances in breast reconstruction; reproductive concerns for women facing cancer treatment; an interview with Olympic figure skater and breast cancer survivor Peggy Fleming; and up-to-date information about the benefits of exercise during and after cancer treatment.

As always, the magazine also includes articles that span wellness, spiritual, and family issues related to a cancer diagnosis, highlighted in this issue by articles about, and many more.
