Keynote Speaker

Amy Robach is a correspondent for ABC News where she contributes to all ABC News broadcasts, appearing most frequently on Good Morning America.

In October 2013, Amy received life-altering news when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. As part of Good Morning America "Goes Pink Day" in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she had her first mammogram at age 40, in the first ever live television mammogram. A few weeks later, Amy received the devastating news that she had breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy and is currently undergoing treatment. Amy credits the decision to have that on-air mammogram as "the difference between life and death."
