She’s back!

For ABC’s Good Morning, America viewers, today is a big deal…Robin Roberts, co-anchor of the show, has returned. Roberts was diagnosed with a rare blood disease last fall and needed a bone marrow transplant. She lost weight, lost her hair, but never lost her determination to gain back her strength and return to work, her “family” as she calls her colleagues.

Roberts had her journey tracked publically as she videoed many of the steps of her medical care. She answered people who wrote to her sharing their health challenges.

Roberts’ willingness to share her own struggle and encourage others may be her best contribution to the GMA audience yet.

Welcome back, Robin!
