Robin Roberts has tweeted that she will not be tweeting for a while!
She will start treatment to get a bone marrow transplant because of a rare condition stemming from a cancer treatment.
She tweeted to her followers:
My last tweet for awhile. Heading to hospital…time to focus on healing. I take each & every one of you w/me in my heart. Light and love.

The Dr. Oz Show offered to pay for the surgery, as long as they got exclusive interview rights.
Wesley Warren Jr. declined that opportunity.
Some people think it’s because he didn’t want the eyes of the public on him, but his reasons are much more blunt:
“Who would want to live like this? I just don’t want to die during the operation.”
The condition is caused by an excess of watery fluid collecting around his testicles.
What’s strange is that he was even fundraising for the surgery, but now he’s turning down the free one — regardless if it prevents him from holding down a job and makes it difficult for him to urinate properly.
