Robin Roberts celebrates 10th anniversary

Back in 2007, Robin Roberts shocked GMA viewers when she announced that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Five years later, she battled myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). She had to undergo surgery and several rounds of chemotherapy for her breast cancer battle. In 2012, Robin received a bone marrow transplant from her sister Sally-Ann, which was successful.

“10 years ago… I was waking up in the hospital after receiving a life-saving bone marrow transplant from my loving sister, Sally-Ann,” Robin Roberts tweeted. “Now, more people than ever can be helped by that procedure and there are new and innovative ways to do them. Coming up on @GMA.”

This week is a big week for the ABC co-anchor. Robin will share “inspiring stories” on how this life-saving treatment can help others. She will also talk about how it felt to return to the big desk after she was away and receiving treatment. In October 2013, Robin said goodbye to her Good Morning America family after her diagnosis and treatment.

She triumphantly returned on February 20, 2013. Back in September, Robin Roberts paid it forward to her sister. She thanked her for giving her the “precious gift” of life. Robin has since focused on raising awareness for cancer treatment. If the treatment would’ve failed, she would’ve only had one or two years to live.

GMA celebrates her cancer-free diagnosis

This is a big week for Robin Roberts. On Tuesday, February 21, ABC News will premiere a special called “Robin’s Journey” that documents her cancer journey. The One Match, Second Chance is a limited series that’s in honor of her 10th anniversary. GMA teamed up with Be The Match, which is an organization founded by the National Marrow Donor Program.

The morning show will also take a look back at Robin Roberts’ personal health journey. ABC has rolled out the promo ahead of the special. She also spoke to People about her anniversary and how she felt about her GMA return. Robin hopes to be a “symbol” of inspiration to others.

“The images of my return always take me back, but more than that, they remind me of how far I’ve come,” Robin Roberts told People.

Because of that, she’s been able to “renew my faith in scientific advancement” as well as her “faith in God.” She’s sure that “the best is still yet to come.” The television personality wants to help others “thrive, not just survive.” She shocked fans when she bungee jumped from the Sky Tower in New Zealand.
