A mother of four has become the 14th woman to develop breast cancer after working at the ABC's Brisbane TV studio.
Angela Eckersley worked on the Toowong site for about seven years as a director's assistant before leaving two years ago, and worked from the same desk as many of those diagnosed with the disease.
A statement released by the Eckersley family said they were "shocked and distressed" by the disease, but they remained positive and appreciated the support of families and friends.

MARK COLVIN: Another woman who worked at the ABC's Brisbane studios has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
It's the 15th case of the disease since 1994 in women who've worked at the Toowong studios.
Angela Eckersley worked at the same newsroom production desk as a significant number of the other women diagnosed with the disease.
It's the first new diagnosis since the Brisbane studios were evacuated just before Christmas.
That happened after an expert panel found the risk of breast cancer for young women at the ABC was twenty times higher than for the general population.
