Happy birthday wishes are in order for Robin Roberts, who turns 52 today. But the “Good Morning America” host has more reasons to celebrate.
Roberts continues to recover from a bone marrow transplant, treatment for in her battle against the rare blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome, also known as MDS.
At the halfway point, and following a recent hospitalization for a virus not responding to medication, Roberts gave an interview to her sister – and marrow donor – Sally-Ann Roberts. “It’s a journey that kind of zigzags, and there are complications and things like that, but I feel good,” she said. “I feel stronger every day.”
She is also feeling positive.
“I look at it as a clean slate,” she said. “How many people can say at this point in their lives that they get do-over, that they get a chance to start again? And that’s how I feel. We’re all a little bit stronger – a little bit stronger than we think we are. And that’s all we need.”
