Tampa TV reporter thanks viewer who spotted her cancer while watching newscast
WFLA reporter Victoria Price took to Twitter to tell here story.
“A bit of ~personal news~ to share, Turns out, I have cancer. And I owe it to one of our wonderful @WFLA viewers for bringing it to my attention. I’ll be off work for a bit after tomorrow, but I’ll see y’all soon.”
In the midst of the COVID, her own personal health was the furthest thing from her mind, until a viewer emailed her.
“Please have your thyroid checked,” the viewer wrote. “Reminds me of my neck. Mine turned out to be cancer. Take care of yourself.” Price said if not for that email she never would have gone to see her doctor and the cancer would have continued to spread.
“I will forever be thankful to the woman who went out of her way to email me, a total stranger,” Price said. “The world is a tough place these days. Don’t forget to take care of yourself. Take care of each other.”
