We’ve already seen the resiliency that GMA’s Robin Roberts have displayed when she beat breast cancer five years ago. She just announced that she’s ready for battle once more after being diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome – a disease of the blood and bone marrow.
“Today, I want to let you know that I’ve been diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome. It’s a disease of the blood and bone marrow and was once known as preleukemia.”
“As many of you know, 5 years ago I beat breast cancer. I’ve always been a fighter, and with all of your prayers and support, a winner. Sometimes the treatment for cancer can cause other serious medical problems.”
“My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this — and I know it’s true.”
“Bottom line: I’ve been living with this diagnosis for awhile and will continue to anchor GMA. I love what I do and the people with whom I do it. Along with my faith, family and friends, all of you at ABC News give me the motivation and energy to face this challenge.”
We believe with you Robin. We will offer prayers for your quick recovery and response to chemotherapy. We’ve seen you fight and we know you’re a winner.
