(NEW YORK) — Robin Robert, the co-ancher of ABC’s Good Morning America, has been recovering from a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder and she’s feeling stronger every day.
“It’s an amazing feeling,” Roberts said, speaking of her improved health to People magazine for the issue that will hit newsstands on Friday.
She received the transplant in September to treat myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, and said the procedure took its toll on her.
There were times when Roberts couldn’t eat, drink or get out of bed. She added that there was a point “where I felt like I was dying,” People reported.
Roberts, 52, will return to GMA on Feb. 20 and will be featured on a special edition of ABC’s 20/20 on Feb. 22.
Last month she returned to the GMA set for a test run, and has said she’s excited for her return to the show.
