Anchor's Courageous Step in Cancer Battle

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9p


A TV anchor in Memphis has shared her battle with breast cancer with her audience.

Yesterday, Pam McKelvy took a final step in her journey while on camera.

Pam went public with her journey last February after undergoing a double mastectomy to remove the cancer. Then, she underwent four rounds of chemo.

She lost her hair during the treatment, so we wore a wig on camera. Then, yesterday Pam chose to take it off for good on air, showing her short, natural hair.

While, the chemo is done, Pam will continue to get regular check-ups every three months for three years.

She says bottom line: Get a mammogram.
