Robin Roberts has made her return to ABC's "Good Morning America" exactly five months to the day after a bone marrow transplant from her sister and only one year since she began feeling the symptoms of MDS. Her return took place on Feb. 20, 2013 and everyone seemed very happy to see her return. With a brave smile she took the desk with grace and did not cover her hair loss with a wig. Robin opened GMA by saying "I have been waiting 174 days to say this, Good morning, America."
The majority of the show focused on the celebration of her return as she recovers from MDS, a blood and bone marrow disease. President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and basketball star Magic Johnson all sent in taped greetings welcoming her back. Throughout the show were smiles and tears.
She has been a long time member of the GMA team and although her smiling face was a little thinner, it was a welcome sight to see as she has become a part of so many of our lives through GMA. Robin is still recovering and is very tired but as you can see she is a fighter and at times it seems that the whole country is fighting with her.
