What’s the latest on Sarah Murphy, who left WWAY to be treated for cancer?

Amanda Lisk

Sarah Murphy. a former “Good Morning Carolina” anchor on WWAY, announced her cancer diagnosis on air in September 2015. The polymorphous low grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA) on the roof of her mouth was removed during treatment in Massachusetts and she returned to Southeastern North Carolina healthy in December 2015.

Today she remains cancer free and is a new mom.

Here is a note from Sarah herself:

 “I’m cancer-free still! The doctor seems to think I’m over the hump of having it return. I still need reconstructive surgery because the hole in my mouth where they removed the tumor is still quite big. I’m still wearing my prosthetic piece so I am able to talk and eat. Not sure when I am going to get the surgery. It was put on hold because I had a baby! Miss Olivia Mary Valvanis was born October 26 at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 19.5 inches. She’s just the best thing that could have ever happened to us!

I am a crazy mom and love to show her off so I attached a photo because she is the sweetest sweet pea around.”
