Late last year, Robin Roberts stepped down from her job anchoring Good Morning America to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Roberts had been diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a blood disease disorder of bone marrow stem cells.
Since that time, viewers and fans have worried over Roberts' health and whether she will be able to return to job on the ABC morning news program. Today on the show, Roberts' colleague and co-worker George Stephanopoulos announced that Roberts will indeed return to her anchor chair on February 20.
Welcome back Robin!!! Big day Feb. 20!!! http://t.co/V0VajDDA
On her ABC News Blog, Roberts herself issued a thank you to friends and family. From the blog post:
I'm excited to re-join my wonderful 'GMA' family. I'm also looking forward to thanking YOU ... for your many prayers and well wishes. Your compassion has been an enormous source of comfort to me and my family.
I'm heading to the beach for the next week to reflect and give thanks for my many blessings.
Light Love Power Presence...XO
