Former 3News Anchor Robin Swoboda announces she has cancer

Swoboda made the announcement on her social media accounts Thursday morning, just days after telling her followers she underwent a biopsy.

CLEVELAND — Former 3News Anchor and Cleveland television personality Robin Swoboda has announced she has breast cancer.

Swoboda made the announcement to her Facebook followers Thursday morning, and gave us permission to write this story. In her post, she said she received her biopsy results online and revealed the tumor doctors found was, in fact, cancerous.

The post read, in part: "I imagine I will hear from my doctor soon as to how we proceed from here. In the meantime, I know my God is faithful...Come What May....and He will see me through this...along with friends like you."

The announcement comes just five days after Swoboda told her followers that doctors found a lump and that her breast surgeon thought it could be a Sarcoidosis, which is a fatty tumor. She also said it could be her cancer returning.

Swoboda kept her followers up-to-date as she underwent her procedure on Monday, posting two videos from the hospital that gave her followers a behind-the-scenes look at what she went through, and what the doctors removed during the biopsy.

In this post, she also thanked her followers for their prayers and good vibes, saying that she loves and appreciates every one of them.

This is the second time Swoboda has battled breast cancer. The first bout was back in 2017, when she stopped by the 3News studios to talk with our Jim Donovan about her diagnosis. She revealed back then that she would not have to undergo chemotherapy at that time, and also spoke about her course of treatment.
