“Anne with an E” star Miranda McKeon underwent a double mastectomy on Wednesday after being diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
The 19-year-old, who has kept his followers updated about his cancer treatment on social media, wrote in his latest post: “Today is the big day !!! I have arrived [San Francisco] to get the surgery that I have been waiting for for almost 5 months.
“I have to have a double mastectomy – a procedure to remove all breast tissue under the skin on both sides as well as some lymph nodes on my right side. This will remove any cancer and reduce my risk of recurrence in the future significantly. It also means that 🥳I will be cancer-free🥳! ”

She added: “After tens of hours of meetings with surgeons and so much research (mostly done by my mom, thank you mom!) I really feel like I found the perfect team with @drannepeled @peledmigraine. While with traditional mastectomies, left women for the most part completely numb in their breasts – I want a sensation that preserves mastectomy, which is safe from an oncological point of view, but more caution is exercised when cutting nerves and nerve grafts to reconstruct severed nerves.
“While it will definitely take some time, I’m so grateful I’ll return to looking and feeling like myself!”
McKeon concluded, “Today, step 2/3 will be completed with radiation as a result. As always, I can not thank everyone enough for their continued support. The people in my life appear to me every single day in ways that are so tender and I’m a lucky girl !!!!!! T- 1 hour to the operation🥂🍀🥰 ”
The actress’ latest post comes after she shared snaps and a video of herself ringing the bell after receiving her last round of chemotherapy.
There’s one in a million chances of getting breast cancer as a 19-year-old, and McKeon was it.
She told that earlier People: “I make it my job to find the beauty in all of this.
“I would not have chosen this, I did not choose this, I do not think anyone would choose this. But I make it my job to try to pull something out of this. ”
