BREAKING NEWS: ABC News anchor, Robin Roberts, diagnosed with secondary cancer...

Breast cancer survivor and ABC News Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts, is reported to have been diagnosed with MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome) recently.  

Details are sketchy.  But MDS, formerly known as preleukemia, is a hematological disorder which is not uncommon among those who have undergone chemotherapy.  But it is more often seen in patients who already have a hematological disorder like multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer) or amyloidosis.

It usually is be treatable.  Not sure if it is curable, however.  Maybe by undergoing a stem cell transplant?

I will pass-along details as they become available.  

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
