Saying it was “time for a personal note,” KFOX 14 anchor Erika Castillo took time after her Carpe Diem feature during the newscast Tuesday night to talk about her recent cancer diagnosis. Castillo informed viewers that, “on January 31 doctors found a malignant tumor in my body,” adding she would be starting treatment soon.

While she did not say what type of cancer she will be battling, she did indicate her medical care would not stop her from reporting the news. Castillo further remarked that she would post "periodically about my progress" on her "Carpe Diem" blog.

Hang in there, Erika. You got this!
