3 Decades, 3 Cancers: Stacey Sager's story

For anyone who has ever faced a cancer diagnosis, Eyewitness News Reporter Stacey Sager describes the importance of speaking up, never giving up, and knowing your own body. As a BRCA-positive woman, Stacey has long advocated for the importance of staying vigilant about both breast and ovarian cancer. Stacey walks viewers through a deeply personal and shocking journey -- one that is a quarter of a century-long. She details her 3 separate cancer cases, and how her most recent cancer formed under the rarest of circumstances. Stacey's doctors from Mount Sinai's Dubin Breast Center of The Tisch Cancer Institute and U Penn's Basser Center for BRCA also enlighten viewers on their thoughts regarding triple-negative breast cancer and the likelihood of vaccines. A must-see for anyone who hopes to find cancer before it is too late, and the inspirational account of someone who continues to defy her own lifetime risk. For a better viewing experience, you can stream the series on-demand on our ABC7NY app on Roku, FireTV, Apple TV, and Android TV. WABC Television New York, LLC | 2024
