MEMPHIS, Tenn. (CNN/WMC) — A television anchor in Tennessee has shared her battle with breast cancer with her audience.

On Wednesday, Pam McKelvy took a final step in her journey — and she did it on camera.

“A woman’s relationship with her hair is sacred. Her hair is her crown of glory. And for women in TV, it’s intensified. I lost my hair after chemo and I’ve been wearing a wig since this past March. Today, I’m taking it off for good. This is a milestone ‘blessed’ experience for me.”

McKelvy’s cancer was discovered during her annual mammogram, and she had a double mastectomy to remove the cancer.
