“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts has undergone bone marrow transplant on Thursday – and kudos to her, it was successful! She is being treated for myelodysplastic syndrome, which was caused by her breast cancer treatment last year.
In a taped message to her fans and “GMA” viewers, Robin offered up a heartfelt message of thanks.
“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts delivered a powerful message Thursday shortly before she underwent a desperate but successful bone-marrow transplant. She said, “This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body. Your thoughts are so powerful. You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel. And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it.”
Robin’s doctor, Dr. Gail Roboz said in a statement, “Medically speaking, she is doing fantastic. I think she misses her mother.”
Robin’s mother Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts passed away on August 30, 2012 — just a mere day after Robin took her leave from “Good Morning America”. The procedure on Thursday took 90 minutes and during which she was surrounded by friends, family and some of her co-workers.
A spokesman for ABC News said, “Now, as expected, it is going to be a long waiting game, but we know Robin is going to beat this.”
We’re praying for her that he’s right. Stay strong Robin, you can do this!
