"Like my 'art' b4 heading in?!” she asked, referring to the surgical markings on her chest pre-surgery.

Last month, the Entertainment Tonight correspondent, 40, revealed she had breast cancer. She told People at the time it felt like an “elephant was sitting on my chest.”

Harris, a mother of two, discovered a lump in her right breast during a self-examination although her mammogram came out clear right before that. After seeing a breast cancer specialist and undergoing a needle biopsy and lumpectomy, she found out she definitely had cancer.

She also said she wanted to “take control” and went with a double mastectomy instead of a less invasive second lumpectomy with radiation.
