Lunden is best known for her role as co-host on Good Morning America where she brought insight to the day’s top stories for nearly two decades. As the longest running female host on early morning television, she reported from 26 countries, covered 5 presidents, 5 Olympics, and reported to viewers how to care for their homes, their families, and their health. Lunden continues to be one of America’s most recognized and trusted personalities as a special correspondent on the TODAY Show, host of the CBS series Your Health, and a sought after speaker and event host throughout the country.

In June of 2014, Lunden was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, which required chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. She decided to turn her diagnosis into an opportunity to help others. She blogged throughout her cancer treatment and wrote a memoir "Had I Known," which documents her battle, and reflects on her life and career.

She serves as an ambassador for Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer, advocates for patients on Capitol Hill, and actively communicates with the cancer community through social media and on her website.

Lunden will share her personal battle with breast cancer, as well as look back on her career as a working mom, share the challenges she faced along the way, and the lessons that came along with them.
