robin roberts Robin Roberts returns to 'Good Morning America' 'rested and rarin' to go'Robin Roberts returned to “Good Morning America” Monday (Aug. 21) looking radiant and, as she tweeted that morning, “rarin’ to go.”

The talk-show co-anchor is expected to undergo a bone-marrow transplant within the next month, part of her ongoing battle against the blood disease myelodysplastic syndrome. Her sister, Sally-Ann Roberts, is her donor.

“Thanks for great welcome back this AM,” Roberts tweeted after her return to “GMA.” “Going right now to tape PSA for #BeTheMatch. Bone marrow donors (like my sis) are saving lives.”

Roberts, 51, received the MDS diagnosis — the result, she says, of her successful treatment for breast cancer — in June. In preparation for bone-marrow transplant, she has been receiving chemotherapy, even during her recent vacation in Italy.

“Grateful to Italy for renewing my spirit/soul,” she tweeted Aug. 18. While in Rome, Roberts was granted access to the Vatican. She posted a picture of herself there, along with the message: “Saying prayer for all who have prayed for me. XO.”
