“Anyone who knows me is well aware I don’t seek public attention,” Torre told The Daily News. “And so when I received a diagnosis of cancer, my inclination was to keep it private. But if there’s any good to come out of all this, it’s the hope that sharing my story can spare others the pain of my experience.” Torre has worked at NY1 since 1992 and is a mother of two.
She will be treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. According to an article on the station’s site, Torre will have surgery on Thursday to remove the cancer, at which point a more detailed diagnosis will be made.
