In this exclusive clip, the 65-year-old reporter and TV personality says the best lesson she's learned from her battle with cancer is "the healing power of support."

"I didn't want my kids to be scare scared, but we were advised [to] tell the kids," Lunden shared. "Family secrets are dangerous, you can have trust issues later in life, the unknown is much scarier than the known [and] they're going to sense something."
