Robin Roberts from “Good Morning America” has now spoken out about her recovery of her bone-marrow transplant over a month ago. “It’s Day 35, thirty-five days ago, I had my bone marrow transplant. It is a journey. Some days I do feel like I am 35 days old and can’t get my head off the pillow, but those days are becoming fewer and fewer. It would be a whole lot easier not to be so public when you’re going through something like this… it’s a privilege to be a messenger. I want to be back on that couch with those froggy slippers. It’s just about understanding the moment. Why I am here now.”
Robin, who recently lost her mother, had her sister Sally donate her bone marrow in hopes of helping her; on October 11th three weeks after Robin went in for bone-marrow transplant she left the hospital.
This is not the first health scare for Robin, in July 2007 she announced to everyone during a live broadcast on the show Good Morning America that she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Robin is eager to move forward and return to “Good Morning America”, the top rated morning show, so she can begin the whole new journey that awaits her after her recovery from MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease.
Robin is a great lady and extremely brave and strong to go through with all this just after losing her mother.
