NEW YORK (Reuters) – Robin Roberts, an anchor on ABC’s “Good Morning America” program who beat breast cancer five years ago, said on Monday she has myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder triggered by her cancer treatment.
Roberts, 51, who expects to undergo a bone marrow transplant this fall with her sister as a donor, learned of the diagnosis on the same day that GMA beat NBC’s “Today” show in viewer ratings for the first time in 16 years, she said in a statement on the network’s website.

MDS is what killed Frau Reinke. Technically kidney failure.
It appears that Ms. Roberts is eligible for a bone marrow transplant. Our Girl wasn’t.
I’m adding Ms. Roberts to my prayer list and hope she survives.
She seems like a nice lady. No one should have that happen to them.
Any way, I thought I’d pass this along for your consideration.
