Cancer Nearly Ruined Amy's Marital Relation:

Cancer not only brought physical pain to her but also dragged her into emotional chaos. It almost destroyed her marriage to former Melrose Place actor Andrew Shue. Shue is her second husband to whom she got married on 6 February 2010.

Amy's ordeal caused many hurdles, but Shue was by her side as a supportive husband. Cancer made their marriage stronger. In an interview with People, Robach said-

"This was not something I would wish on anyone's marriage, but I think it was especially hard on a newer marriage. All of a sudden I felt like I needed him in a very needy way, and that's not my personality," she says. "When I had my crisis I completely crumbled. It threw everything up in the air. It was rough for several months."
