Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts reached 100 days post-bone marrow transplant and is sharing her milestone with all of her fans.
Roberts underwent her bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, or (MDS). Her sister came to her side and donated the bone marrow to help her fight off the rare blood disease.
According to E! News, Roberts’ doctor, Dr. Gail Roboz, discussed the importance of passing the 100 day mark after the bone marrow surgery noting, “We have to watch patients super closely for 100 days. We don't trust anything for the first 100 days. After that, we're happy."
Roberts celebrated the100 day mark by posting a message on Twitter along with a snapshot of her holding her calendar marking the day. “Every morning I mark the day post my bone marrow transplant. Today I reached a major milestone...Day 100! Blessings..XO,” she wrote.
She later added another tweet holding her adorable dog writing, “Look who made it back for my 100 day celebration...KJ!! We just keep staring at each..can't believe she's finally home.”
