"The great news is that I caught it early and although I am getting a mastectomy- I don’t need chemo," Amy continued. "In other words I feel so lucky and grateful for this diagnosis which could have easily been so much worse if I had waited. So...if you are a lady out there and you feel something in your boob- go get a mammogram."

"KNOWING IS BETTER...even if it’s the worst news you can hear," she added. "I will leave you with the mantra that so many women revert back to in order to minimize how they are feeling- but in my case, it really is the truth...I’m fine. Still...#f—cancer."

Foster has since commented on his daughter's post, writing, "Sorry Ames-been traveling so took a while for me to see this in China here - it has been such a ruff roller coaster ride for you this past 3 weeks but I am so proud of how strong you are and how you finally have an outcome that is best scenario of the worst situation-your attitude is incredible and your message is right on point to all women out there-i love you and will always be right beside you on this which you will be looking at in the rear view mirror before too long xoxo."

Many other of Amy's friends and followers have commented as well, with actress Melissa Peterman saying, "You got this. Sending you strength, love, and some extra fierce. You are fine, you will be fine but yes indeed #f—cancer."
