Leslie Mouton wiki, Leslie Mouton Bio
Leslie Mouton wiki: Leslie Mouton (born 1965) is a television news anchor and public speaker.
Mrs. Mouton is the weekday co-anchor of Good Morning San Antonio between 4:30 a.m-7:00am. for KSAT-TV news, the ABC affiliate in San Antonio, Texas. She has been a broadcast journalist since 1988 and has worked at KSAT since 1999.
In October 2000, at the age of 35, Mouton was discovered with a very aggressive form of breast cancer. She allowed cameras to follow her during the entire treatment process which included surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
To bring awareness to the disease and offer encouragement and support to other women suffering from it, Mouton anchored a newscast without her wig on in order to reveal the hair loss that had resulted from the treatment process. The resulting attention landed Mouton on Good Morning America, Weekend Today, and Oprah. Newspapers worldwide as well as television programs Inside Edition and Primetime featured stories about her struggle.
Mouton continues to speak publicly about her disease in an effort to educate women about the importance of self-exams and early detection.
Her story is included in the book The Breast Cancer Book of Strength and Courage which features individual chapters written by survivors. The book’s proceeds go to education and research for breast cancer. A PBS documentary on the book features Mouton and her family.

Leslie Mouton Personal life
Mouton is married to retired Air Force pilot Major Tony Mattox. They have one daughter Nicole Danielle Mattox.
Unlike her bright profession, Leslie could not flourish that well regarding health. Well, back in 1983, Leslie found a lump in her left breast, which later was diagnosed to be breast cancer.
Instead of hiding her disease, she boldly confronted her cancer and decided to take the journey in front of the public. For the treatment, Leslie underwent chemotherapy, radiation and even faced hair fall problems. After a round of medications, she was finally cured.
