Robin Roberts returned to the "Good Morning America" anchor desk this morning, five months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder.
"I keep pinching myself and I realize that this is real. This is really happening," Roberts, 52, said. "Faith, family and friends have brought me to this moment and I am so full of gratitude." Watch the anchorwoman's return appearance on this morning's show below!
"There's so many people that I want to thank throughout the morning, my doctors and nurses and family and colleagues and people who have sat in this chair and those who have blazed the trail before me," Roberts said.
"As my mother said, 'We all have something,'" she said. "Everyone's story has purpose and meaning and value and I share this morning, this day of celebration, with everyone."
