On Monday, Good Morning Americaunveiled two public service announcements featuring their female co-anchor, who beat her fight against myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) TWICE, after receiving bone marrow from her sister, Sally-Ann.
Now recovered, Roberts, 53, is working tirelessly to recruit potential bone marrow donors, particularly in the African-American community, and to support research that could help patients suffering from blood cancers like the one that threatened her life. The PSAs are a joint effort between Be the Match up and Stand up to Cancer.
