TAMPA - After guest co-hosting Good Morning America Wednesday, Ann Romney flew to Tampa to tour the Moffitt Cancer Center.

Romney is a breast cancer survivor who also battles multiple sclerosis. She spoke with patients and staff at the women's oncology center.

ABC 7's Hayley Wielgus had the chance to sit down with her for a few minutes and talk about the upcoming election.

She told us about what she has learned during her time on the campaign trail. “They're not numbers to us anymore, because we've been on the trail and we've seen the faces of these millions of Americans who are unemployed right now and we've heard them and they're not numbers to us anymore. I think that's what came through, that this is real, and this America is hurting right now, and we have some solutions and answers.”

She also says you can feel the change in momentum on the campaign trail since Mitt Romney's strong performance in the first presidential debate. “People got to see him how I see him. He's a person who's confident. He's really been successful with everything he's done in his life. He understands the economy. He understands job creation, but also he's caring and that's what came through for me.”

Ann Romney will be in Sarasota tomorrow morning for a fundraising breakfast with Congressman Connie Mack at the Hyatt Regency Sarasota.
