Robin Roberts was on the receiving end of lots of love and support following her announcement that she’s battling a rare blood and bone marrow disease. Just a day after breaking the news, she’s already back to work and set on a course to overcome her health issues.
Robin Roberts Receives Support From Michelle Obama After Announcing Battle With Blood Disorder
A day after Robin Roberts announced she has the rare blood and bone marrow disease, myelodysplastic syndrome, the TV host was back to work on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where she thanked everyone for their support.
Roberts, 51, said on Tuesday, “I slept like a baby last night for the first night since my diagnosis . . . My family and I are overwhelmed and comforted by the response from everyone. Thank you just doesn’t begin to express our gratitude.”
Roberts also said she had a conversation Monday night with Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. “It really has been very comforting,” she added about the support.
The morning show host has already started chemotherapy pre-treatment, which will ready her for a bone marrow transplant, probably this fall. Her sister will be the donor. During that period, she will have to take some time off from work.
We’re praying for you Robin! We know you can beat this.
