CNN's Zoraida Sambolin on her recovery process after having a double mastectomy

Early Start co-anchor Zoraida Sambolin had a double mastectomy last week after discovering she had breast cancer.

She was inspired to share her diagnosis and incredibly brave decision to get the surgery after reading Angelina Jolie's New York Times op-ed revealing that she had undergone the surgery for preventative reasons.

This morning Zoraida joins “Starting Point” via Skype to share the latest on her recovery.

    I miss waking up to her and John. I have become a news junkie thanks to the sincerity with which those two deliver news. The new morning show that comes on just doesn't have the same balance that John and Zoraida have :-(....Get well soon!

    I've missed Zoraida during the past 2 weeks as I watch during nightowl hours here in LosAngeles..I was hoping she was on vacation, but feared she probably was off air fighting cancer..I'm sure she'll be getting to perhaps Maui very soon upon her speediest recovery that I wish for her. I also send best wishes to her family and hope she'll be keeping me awake with her caring incise anchoring in the wee hours again very soon.
