"Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts was radiant in an elegant blue evening gown at the 2013 Academy Awards in Los Angeles Feb. 24. Roberts looked healthy and happy in the body-hugging dress, which accentuated her athletic 5-foot-10 physique.
Roberts, 53, underwent a bone-marrow transplant in September 2012 for myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood and bone-marrow disorder. She returned to work earlier this week after recuperating from surgery and chemotherapy.
Robin is now cancer-free and says she's feeling almost like her old self. "Every day I feel more like my old self. I didn't think I would," Roberts told People. "I've still got chemo brain and my vision is blurry. You feel so bad for so long. You just want to feel normal, and now I do."
Robin, who overcame breast cancer in 2007, has opted not to wear a wig as her hair slowly grows in. "I'm thankful I have a pretty-good-shaped head," she laughed.
Roberts lost 30 pounds during her recent illness, but says she's gradually regaining her strength and appetite. "It's been hard to put back on [weight] — a first in my life," she says. "But I gained a pound. Woo-hoo!"
