Robin Roberts has been battling a blood disorder, myelodysplastic syndrome, for quite some time now and has not been shy about discussing the tool it has had on her body.

Though, through a newly released video recorded at a hospital where she is being treated, the “Good Morning America” news anchor says she refuses to allow it defeat her.

Roberts, who is also a breast cancer survivor, is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant on Thursday here in New York City, E Online reports. The broadcast TV legend left GMA in August to deal with her illness but has been very brave as she undergoes treatment, according to her oncologist, Dr. Gail Roboz.
