She made the announcement Monday Morning.

Roberts battled breast cancer five years ago. The “Good Morning America'' anchor announced that she has been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood and bone marrow disease once known as preleukemia.



She says she will undergo chemo and a bone marrow transplant this year as “pretreatment'' for the disease, which she says she has known about for several weeks. She says her sister is a great match for her. While she says she'll miss a day here and there, she'll remain on the air.
