Robin Roberts has announced that Friday will be her last day at Good Morning America so she can begin her medical leave to undergo bone-marrow transplant surgery. Earlier this year, Robin revealed that she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease that attacks the blood and bone marrow. Roberts sister will be the bone marrow donor, and Robin explains “she is the perfect match, and she’s been spending a lot of time with me, and has been taking shots to help her prepare.”
Roberts procedure is scheduled for Tuesday, and she states that she plans to return to her job at Good Morning America shortly after her recovery! GMA will be using a slew of star studded substitutes to fill in for Robin while she is away. Who would you like to see fill in for Roberts while she is on medical leave? Best wishes to Robin for a speedy recovery!
