      Robin Roberts Health Threat

      "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts is facing another major health battle.

      51 year old Roberts says she has been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a rare blood disorder affecting the bone marrow.

      Experts say the bone marrow loses its ability to produce enough mature blood cells.

      MDS is often referred to as pre-leukemia.

      Doctors say, it might be linked to Roberts prior cancer treatment five years ago.

      Roberts will receive a bone marrow transplant from her older sister later this year.

      Roberts remains upbeat about her diagnosis and her prognosis.
