"My initial thoughts were [of] my daughter," she told Good Morning America in a 2018 interview. "This shouldn't be her life story. She doesn't have what I want her to have and now she won't even have me. You start calling life insurance. I was essentially planning my own funeral. All these thoughts were running through my head. I was sad, I was scared. Here I am with breast cancer and they wanted to do a double mastectomy. I thought, 'Who is going to love me?"
