Los Angeles: TV presenter Samantha Harris says her young daughters have been really good and very helpful throughout her breast cancer ordeal.

The 40-year-old presenter, who has children Josselyn, six, and Hilary, three, with her husband Michael Hess, underwent a double mastectomy in May and says her kids have been really good throughout her ordeal, reportedly.

"They were both really good about it. They were helpers, they brought me things, they checked on me - and we just continually assured them that, `Mommy`s going to be in bed for a little bit, but then I`m going to be fine`," Harris said.

The former `Dancing with the Stars` host is now readying herself for a second stage of reconstructive surgery later this month.
