LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - WAVE 3 News anchor Dawne Gee will undergo surgery on Saturday, March 21 to remove a small tumor in her stomach.
Doctors decided to move up the surgery from next month because of a slight chance the tumor is cancerous.
Dawne took a leave of absence from WAVE 3 News late last year to recover from kidney cancer surgery.
She has been open about her many other health battles, including a series of benign brain tumors, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
Dawne expects to be off the air for a few weeks while she recovers.
In the meantime, viewers can express their well-wishes to Dawne via
