Earlier today, “Good Morning America’s” Robin Roberts announced that she has been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, also called MDS.
Five years after battling and beating breast cancer, an emotional Roberts said: “My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this — and I know it’s true,” Roberts said.”
Roberts, 51, was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, also called MDS, on the same day in April that her show beat out NBC’s “Today Show” in the ratings for the first time in nearly 16 years, she said. “Talk about your highs and lows!”
MDS is “a disease of the blood and bone marrow and was once known as preleukemia,” Roberts said in her message on the ABC News website.
