The journalist also revealed the news of her diagnosis simultaneously on Facebook, posting, "I have covered many stories about breast cancer over the years but I never actually thought this would happen to me."
She continues, "I have shaped my career around health & wellness advocacy so it seemed natural to share my story. I've started chemotherapy and while I don't know how I'll look and feel down the road, I am assuming the best because that is how I live my life," she wrote.
Roberts and "GMA" news anchor, Amy Robach, have also recently been treated for breast cancer.
Lunden's treatment will include a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. Thankfully, she is expected to make a full recovery.
