Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts has decided that it was time to come out to the world on her official Facebook page. It may not have been a secret to those of whom are close to the TV personality, but the rest of the world was none the wiser.
She had undergone treatment for a bone marrow disease and thanked family, friends and her long-time girlfriend Amber Laign for their support. Below is her full statement on her Facebook page:
Flashback 12/29/12….Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today..when I reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant…and KJ was finally allowed to come back home.
Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
At this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude.
I am grateful to God, my doctors and nurses for my restored good health.
I am grateful for my sister, Sally-Ann, for being my donor and giving me the gift of life.
I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together.
I am grateful for the many prayers and well wishes for my recovery. I return every one of them to you 100 fold.
On this last Sunday of 2013 I encourage you to reflect on what you are grateful for too.
Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year.
Peace, love, and blessings to all..XO
Congratulations to her for coming out and sharing that with her fans on the social networking site. May the New Year bring her and those close to her health and happiness.
