This morning ABC news anchor Robin Roberts
is in a New York hospital recovering from a bone marrow transplant. She's taking some time off from Good Morning
America to battle a rare blood disorder spurred by her treatment for breast
cancer last year. During Thursday's 90
minute procedure liquefied bone marrow, donated by her sister, was slowly
injected through an IV drip. Doctors say
it could be weeks before anyone knows if she's cured from the disorder. Her high profile medical case is raising
awareness about bone marrow transplants.
And you can be part of a bone marrow registry drive to see
if you can potentially save lives. Karen
Marble recently went through the screening and donation process and is here to
talk about it.
