Governor Cuomo’s love interest, that is celebrity chef, Sandra Lee, underwent breast removal at a hospital in order to rid her of her cancer. She thanked everyone on her Facebook page for their love and support through the ordeal which she had to suffer.

Celebrity chef, Sandra Lee, who also happens to be the lady friend of Governor Cuomo underwent a double mastectomy at a hospital in the Big Apple recently. She was suffering from breast cancer and had to undergo the dreaded surgery as a final stage in the prevention of further metastasis.

She entered the hospital with Cuomo alongside her. After a harrowing 300 minutes of going under the knife, she emerged none the worse for wear, according to NYDailyNews

Lee posted a pic of herself along with Governor Cuomo sitting together in a pensive moment right before the surgery. She said in the note attached with the pic that she was thankful to the doctors and medical staff for the efforts they will be putting in, in order to save her life. She expressed the hope that things would turn out right in the end.

Governor Cuomo later on said that she had emerged unscathed from the major surgery and that he was very happy and wanted to wish her a speedy recovery.

Cuomo also offered his profuse thanks to all the friends and family members not to mention acquaintances who had remembered Sandra Lee in their prayers. Their kindness and camaraderie meant everything to the two of them.  

The Governor had driven Sandra and her sister in his car to the hospital. He also was with her every step of the way that is until the surgeons took over.

The Food Network, which employed Sandra’s services in its television shows, posted a get-well message too. The gist of this message was that they knew that she was a fighter and tough person and she would beat cancer and come out a healthy and revitalized person.  

Sandra, who is a blonde, announced her cancerous condition on television a few days ago. She had been suffering for awhile. And although she had had a previous lumpectomy, the cancer’s resurgence meant that a double mastectomy was unavoidable.

Sandra was anxious and depressed like anyone else would be at such a challenge and matter of life and death. Yet it looks like she may have a long life ahead of her despite the initial diagnosis. She is a woman with full faith in herself. And it is precisely this sort of self-confidence and self-esteem that makes people afflicted with cancer gain an edge over the deadly disease.
