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.
Robin Roberts has a special connection to The Obamas: She found out she was interviewing President Obama on the very same day she underwent a painful bone marrow extraction. “The combination of landing the biggest interview of my career and having a drill in my back reminds me that God only gives us what we can handle and that it helps to have a good sense of humor when we run smack into the absurdity of life,” Robin wrote on her blog. And First Lady Michelle Obama was quick to offer her condolences to the GMA host.
Robin Roberts – If ever there was a time to be “in it to win it,” it is now. And you made it very clear on GMA this morning, June 11, that you will conquer the blood and bone marrow disease you’ve been diagnosed with – myelodysplastic syndrome, also known as MDS.
We’re so sorry to report that GMA host Robin Roberts, 51, has been diagnosed with MDS — Myelodysplastic Syndrome.

It’s official: Demi Lovato is back and better than ever! During a special interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Demi assured Robin Roberts — and her legions of Lovatics — that her new album, Unbroken, is her best one yet. “I’ve taken a lot of time off over the past year, and now I’m back in the game … with a vengeance,” Demi said Sept. 19. “I’m ready. I’m here, and I’m unbroken.”
