(WXYZ) - Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts announced Monday morning that she is battling a disease of the blood and bone marrow.
Roberts, who battled and beat breast cancer five years ago, announced that she has been diagnosed with a disease called MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome.
She says it's a disease that was once known as preleukemia.
Doctors tell Roberts that she is young and fit and will tackle the disease.
Roberts will begin chemotherapy ahead of a bone marrow transplant to take place later this year. Her sister is a good match and Roberts says this improves the chances for a cure.
She will continue to anchor GMA while undergoing treatment, but will take time off when she undergoes the transplant.
