Traffic reporter Jessica Sanchez is documenting her cancer battle through a blog called "Let's Be Honest" on the WKMG-Channel 6 website.

"She's laying it all out there with class and humor," WKMG General Manager Skip Valet said Tuesday. "I think she'll be very public in this fight. It's her decision. She says it's therapeutic to write about it."

In a March 23 posting, she writes: "Day 4 of chemotherapy and I have been blessed with no bad reactions to the cocktail of drugs that flow into my veins 24 hours a day. Unless you count the 18 pounds of fluid that have accumulated around my belly. 18 POUNDS!!!"

She decorates the blog with a candid photo showing her during chemotherapy.

On March 16, the station announced she has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer that starts in cells called lymphocytes.

Valet said that Sanchez and the station will have a better idea in 20 days when she might return to the morning news.

Valet said he spoke to Sanchez on Tuesday. "Her spirits are real high. I think she's doing great," he said. "She wants to come back on the air and talk about it."

Sanchez joined the CBS affiliate in 2004. When the station announced her cancer diagnosis, she said: "The thoughts, prayers and support I have received so far have been amazing!  While this is tough news to take, I plan to turn it into an experience from which I can learn, grow and share."
