In this brave and deeply personal memoir, one of America’s most beloved journalists, mother, and New York Times bestselling author speaks candidly about her battle against breast cancer, her quest to learn about it and teach others, and the transformative effect it’s had on her life.
When former Good Morning America host Joan Lunden was diagnosed with breast cancer, she set out to learn everything about it to help her survive. With seven children counting on her, giving up was not an option. After announcing her diagnosis on Good Morning America, people all over the country rallied around Joan as she went into Warrior mode. Within a few months, after losing her hair, Joan appeared on the cover of People magazine bald, showing the world she could, and would, beat the disease. Determined to remain upbeat—to look in the mirror with a brave face—her resolve empowered women everywhere. The Today show quickly recruited Joan as a special correspondent and continues to follow her progress.
A deeply personal and powerful story of pain, persistence, and perseverance, Had I Known is a chronicle of Joan’s experience and the plan she formulated and followed to battle with her disease and treatment. As Joan reveals, while her journey was not easy, it profoundly changed her in unexpected ways. Her odyssey helped Joan redefine herself, her values, and most of all, her health. Following a new clean way of eating, Joan lost thirty pounds, became more aware of the food she was eating, and avoided many of the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy.
Dealing with the cancer also changed her perception of true beauty. Being attractive isn’t about the hair on your head—it’s about the strength and character you bring to everything you do. Positive yet down-to-earth, told with piercing honesty leavened with warmth and humor, Had I Known offers unforgettable, inspirational lessons for us all.
From the Back Cover:
After Joan Lunden announced her diagnosis of Stage 2 Triple Negative Breast Cancer on Good Morning America, people all over the country rallied around her as she went into warrior mode. With a large extended family counting on her, giving up was not an option. Joan appeared on the cover of People magazine bald, showing the world her brave resolve and that breast cancer does not need to define you. As she faced the possible consequences of death, Joan looked back on her life, her career, and all the decisions that she made along the way that brought her to who she is today.
Joan’s illness has redefined her values and her health. Following a new clean and healthy way of eating, Joan became her own best advocate by taking control of her nutrition, which helped combat the adverse side effects of chemotherapy.
Uncharacteristically vulnerable, irreverent, and straight from the heart, Had I Known is a powerful story of pain, persistence, and perseverance in which Joan openly evaluates her decision to go public with her battle, involving shaving her head, wig shopping, and reconnecting with her viewers. By rediscovering her purpose, Joan ultimately realizes that sometimes you have to look back to move forward.
