Robin Roberts, Good Morning America anchor
Robin Roberts is counting down to transplant time now.
In a new Robin's Journey blog post she starts out sounding strong, writing, "Last Sunday to lift my spirits I threw a little party at my apartment for my GMA family. The next morning I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels -- mom & dad -- back together and blazing a trail ahead of me."

But now the Good Morning America co-anchor says that "the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going."
Today, she writes, is her last day of chemo before her bone marrow transplant to treat her rare blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS. "Wednesday is called a day of rest, yay, right! The transplant is scheduled for Thursday morning. Bless you & Onward!"
