(WASHINGTON) — First Lady Michelle Obama has a special message for ABC News’ Robin Roberts, who announced Monday that she is battling a rare blood disorder.
“@RobinRoberts, Barack and I have you in our prayers. We believe in you and thank you for bringing awareness and hope to others,” the first lady tweeted.
The post was signed “-mo” to note that Mrs. Obama tweeted it herself.
The Good Morning America co-anchor who beat breast cancer five years ago has been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder that affects the bone marrow.
