Erin Andrews is a Fox NFL reporter and the co-host of “Dancing With The Stars.” She is also now a cervical cancer survivor, who is urging other women to get screened.

She recently revealed to Sports Illustrated’s The MMQB that she went to in for a routine checkup in June 2016 and found out after additional testing that she had cervical cancer, and would need surgery as soon as possible.

Known for her incredible work ethic and love of football, she returned to work just days after her surgery and is now cancer-free. “Everyone kept telling me, ‘You’re so strong, for going through all of this, for holding down a job in football, for being the only woman on the crew,’ ” Andrews says. “Finally I got to the point where I believed it too. ‘Hey, I have cancer, but dammit, I am strong, and I can do this.’ ”

We commend Erin for being an inspiration to other women and cancer survivors.
