Olympic champion Shannon Miller is talking about her fight with ovarian cancer.

The Edmond native sat down with ABC's Robin Roberts on Good Morning America to discuss her diagnosis and treatment.

Miller says doctors discovered a baseball size cyst on one of her ovaries late last year.

She has since had it removed and completed nine weeks of chemotherapy.

She told Roberts, "I was so excited to be going through my last day of chemo, but it really did hit me, 'Is it going to come back? When is it going to come back?' It's just terrifying and I know that I can't live that way. I trust in God that he as a great plan for me."

Miller is married and has an 18 month old son.

During her career, Miller won 7 medals in the Olympics. She is the most decorated gymnast in U.S. history.
