WWL’s Sally-Ann Roberts: ‘I Am Just Amazed at the Outpouring of Affection Everywhere I Go’

WWL anchor Sally-Ann Roberts is preparing to donate bone marrow to her sister, “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts, who was recently diagnosed with MDS. The Roberts sisters are working to raise awareness of the need for bone marrow donors, and the pair has received a lot of support along the way, Sally-Ann tells the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

I am just amazed at the outpouring of affection everywhere I go. People say to me, “Tell your sister I’m praying for her.” If I’ve heard that once, I’ve heard it 1,000 times in just the span of the news breaking about this. Just this past Sunday, I was at the National Association of Black Journalists gospel brunch and a woman came up to me and she told me, “My 16-year-old son is an MDS survivor. He had a bone marrow transplant and he’s doing well.” I just hugged her and thanked her for sharing. I’m just so very grateful for the good news that I’m hearing, that this tunnel does have light at the end of it.
