Robin Roberts returned to anchor GOOD MORNING AMERICA on Wednesday, almost six months after taking a medical leave of absence to undergo a bone marrow transplant for a rare blood disorder.
Faith, Family and Friends have brought me to this moment and I am so full of gratitude. There are so many people I want to thank throughout the morning. My doctors and nurses and family and colleagues and people who have sat in this chair and those who have blazed the trail before me. As my mother said, we all have something and everyone’s story has purpose and meaning and value. And I share this morning, this day of celebration with everyone.
Throughout the morning her Good Morning America colleagues surprised her with welcome back messages and she also sat down for an interview with her sisters Dorothy Roberts McEwen and Sally-Ann Roberts (photo below).
