"I went in for a regular mammogram, and the results came back positive, and I have breast cancer," Allen tells shocked employees at her business Bridals by Lori. "I've got to have surgery and I'm going to be out for quite a while."

In the one-hour special, Allen will open up about her "devastating" cancer diagnosis in April and chronicle her struggle to beat the disease. "Wanting to turn something very negative into something positive, I decided to share my journey -- in hopes that I can raise breast cancer awareness and perhaps help other women facing breast cancer be less afraid," she explained.
