Posted Tuesday September 18, 2012 5:05 PM GMT

She’s been such a great example of staying positive in tough times, and earlier today (September 18) Robin Roberts gave fans an update on her heath issues stemming from Myelodysplastic syndrome.

The “Good Morning America” star took to her blog to share that she’ll be undergoing a bone marrow transplant on Thursday, thanks to her sister Sally who has agreed to be the donor.

Robin wrote, "The start of last week went well but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going."

On Sunday, Roberts had a gathering for her GMA family in preparation for the tough week ahead. "The next morning I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels -- mom & dad -- back together and blazing a trail ahead of me."
