After graduating and landing her dream job at 20/20, she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27. Lucas was an editorial producer at 20/20 for seven years before becoming a director of public affairs at Lifetime Television. Lucas left Lifetime in January 2008 to work on a screenplay and continue her advocacy work.
