The ‘GMA’ anchor is expected to take a medical leave in August or September, calling her journey ‘fascinating-slash-scary.’
Robin Roberts is continuing her brave battle against Myelodysplastic Syndrome. Addressing reporters July 26 at the Television Critics Association conference, the Good Morning America anchor announced she’ll be abandoning her post in late August or early September to undergo a bone-marrow transplant.
“It’s fascinating-slash-scary how to prepare yourself for something like this,” Robin, 51, told the press. And although she admitted to feeling “moments of fatigue,” she also said GMA‘s high ratings have been “pretty good medicine.”
Robin first revealed her MDS diagnosis June 11, adding that she would be receiving bone marrow from her sister, 55-year-old Sally-Ann Roberts.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Robin during this incredibly difficult time.
