Samantha Harris Recovering from Double Mastectomy

Samantha Harris has made it through surgery.

The former Dancing with the Stars co-host Tweeted to her fans Tuesday to let them know she's safe after undergoing a double mastectomy for breast cancer.

Harris, 40, even lightheartedly referred to the surgical lines on her chest as "art."

"Made it thru grueling double mastectomy #surgery. Thanks to all of my amazing surgical team. Like my "art" b4 heading in?!" she wrote.

Harris found a lump in her right breast in a routine self-examination last fall. Although she had recently had a clean mammogram, she saw a breast cancer specialist, and was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Harris and her husband of 10 years, financier Michael Hess, struggled with how to reveal the news to her two daughters, Josselyn, 6½, and Hillary, 3.

The couple decided that telling the girls separately would be best, due to their age differences. They also made a video of Harris's health journey.

"The day we found out while it was still fresh in our minds, we made a video," she has said. "I don't know if we'll end up showing it to them, but at least we have the option reports People."

Now that surgery is done and she is out we wish her the best. There is still a long recovery ahead for her and her family. With young children it is so hard to explain that mommy is sick. We wish them the best and hope that they caught it early enough that it had not had a chance to spread to other parts of her body.
