Robin Roberts to return to GMA on Feb. 20
NEW YORK -- Robin Roberts will return to the "Good Morning America" anchor desk on Wednesday, Feb. 20, five months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder.
"What a difference a year makes," said Roberts, who began feeling the symptoms of her illness about a year ago. "I cannot wait to return to my GMA family. It's going to be an incredible morning in Times Square. The overwhelming thoughts and prayers of the viewers have played a major part in getting me here today. I cannot thank everyone enough."
The official announcement was made today on "GMA" after Roberts received the all-clear from her doctors. Her most recent test showed no abnormalities, and over the course of her recovery, the anchor has continued to regain her strength and energy.
