Joan Lunden net worth started to grow in the mid-1970s, as she was hired by ABC news to work as WABC reporter. Just a year after starting on this flagship station of ABC she was promoted to the position of an anchor. In 1976 Lunden started working on the show that she is still widely associated with: Good Morning America. A major breakthrough in her career came with the 1980s, when she became a co-anchor of the later show. While working on television Joan has also published several books on a rather wider range of topics: Growing up Healthy: Protecting your child now through Adulthood, oan Lunden’s Healthy Living, Joan Lunden’s Healthy Cooking, Wake Up Calls: Making the Most Out of Every Day, A Bend in the Road is not the End of the Road: 10 Positive Principles For Dealing With Change, Mother’s Minutes, Your Newborn Baby, Good Morning I’m Joan Lunden.
Some of these books reflected experiences in Joan‘s personal life. And what were the most important events in this sphere? In the early 2000s Lunded attracted much attention as she decided to once again become a new mother, this time with the help of a surrogate. The reason why this decision was questioned is that by that time Joan was already 54 years old. Her age was also the reason why the couple had to turn to the surrogate mother: „We tried in vitro fertilization many times, but it wasn’t working. My doctor said, “No, keep trying, because it’s a numbers game. We’re going to get this done. (…) But when you’re approaching 50, it’s also a time game.“ As for the day, Lunden already has two sets of twins, born with the help of a surrogate mother. Unfortunately, in 2014 the star shared sad news: she was diagnosed with breast cancer. When seeking for treatment, Joan chose a path called chemotherapy first, not the typical mastectomy, with the goal of shrinking her two tumors so surgery would be of a smaller scale.
