TV Personality and cook Sandra Lee is known for her delicious "semi-homemade" meals and beautiful tablescapes.

As the longtime girlfriend of Governor Cuomo, she's often seen by his side at campaign events and on red carpets.

But a new documentary loses all of the picture-perfect aesthetics and gives an inside look at her grueling battle with breast cancer and into the operating room during her double mastectomy.

She has worked with Governor Cuomo to pass legislation that can be used as a blueprint for other states to implement better options for early detection of cancer.

Pat Kiernan spoke to her about her documentary called "RX: Early Detection, a cancer journey with sandra Lee" where she takes viewers through the entire ordeal, starting with the moment she found out she had cancer.
