O-Town Reporter to Shave Her Head on Newscast


FTVLive has been telling you about WKMG Traffic Reporter Jessica Sanchez and her fight with cancer.

This morning on the morning news, Sanchez will shave her head. 

"She’s in good spirits and she's staying positive," WKMG news director Steve Hyvonen said Friday. "She's going through an ordeal that anyone who has been through chemotherapy knows. Her hair is falling out."

On March 16, the station announced that Sanchez has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

So she plans to shave her head Saturday, and WKMG will share the update on the morning news, which usually features Sanchez.

"Jessica suggested we shoot video of it," Hyvonen said. "She has been blogging about her journey, telling anyone who's interested about what she's going through. She's been very forthright."

WKMG plans to share more about Sanchez over the weekend via its Facebook page and its website. Sanchez is documenting her cancer battle through a blog called "Let's Be Honest" on the station's website.
