Posted: Updated:

MEMPHIS, TN (WKOW) -- A news anchor in Tennessee battled cancer in the public eye and now she's able to share her final victory on air.

Pam McKelvy discovered she had breast cancer during her annual mammogram. She underwent a double mastectomy to remove the cancer and she shared her entire journey with her audience.

McKelvy states "A woman's relationship with her hair is sacred. Her hair is her crown of glory. And for women in TV its 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"

After the grand reveal, she went on to thank everyone for the unyielding support during her battle. She says she feels more radiant and more beautiful than she's ever been. She's also extremely grateful to be able to return to her station and share her experience.
