Five years ago, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts fought breast cancer. Today, with her colleagues at her side, she announced that she has Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a rare reaction to the chemo that helped her beat the cancer. MDS is a blood disorder that affects the bone marrow and blood cells, and in an emotional and grateful moment Robin shared that her older sister is a nearly identical match and will be her donor.
Robin says she will beat MDS; her doctors say she’ll beat it, and her faith says she will. It’s a faith she learned from her mother, who says: “Everybody’s got somethin’.” (A profound 3-word reminder.) Robin vows to focus on the fight…not the fright.
FIGHT, NOT FRIGHT
We wish Robin Roberts the very best and thank her for “Shining A Light” and inspiring us all.
