'Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta' star: 'Time to put my big girl panties on and have a double mastectomy'
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but the 1-hour special chronicles Allen back in the spring of 2012 after her diagnosis, and subsequent treatment. It's a story of strength and hope -- but certainly a rollercoaster of emotions.
In the clip below, Allen talks about removing both of her breasts, and what it means to her.
"I hate cancer," Allen says. "I'm thinking what have I got to do, to get this out of my body."
"It's scary to have your breasts removed," she admits. "It's time for me to put my big girl panties on and get a double mastectomy."
