Instead of trying to score cheap political points neither Ann Romney or her husband’s campaign would comment on the call.
Robin Roberts, the Good Morning America co-host who announced yesterday that she had been diagnosed with MDS, spoke with Ann Romney last night.
“I had a lovely phone conversation with Ann Romney last night, who’s had her own health challenges,” Roberts said on this morning’s edition of GMA. “It really has been really comforting.”
Romney was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998 and, ten years later, with a non-invasive type of breast cancer. Roberts underwent her own treatment for breast cancer in 2007, which led to the current diagnosis of MDS, a rare blood and bone marrow disease for which Roberts will undergo chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.
The Romney campaign did not respond to a request for comment regarding the conversation.
