Wishing You Well, Robin Roberts!

The morning “news” programs may be more fluff than anything else, but it’s still difficult not to like GMA‘s Robin Roberts.

The former ESPN star is smart, well-spoken and not rude or crude as a host and has discussed being a Christian woman on CBN.

Robin Roberts

She unfortunately has also had to battle health issues, such as the blood and bone marrow disorder called M.D.S. she is currently dealing with as Roberts announced Monday.


Roberts, already a breast cancer survivor, will receive a bone marrow transplant from her older sister Sally-Ann later in the year and likely miss GMA for a few months.

I am more of a ‘Today‘ viewer out of habit, but ABC‘s GMA has made inroads into the NBC show’s ratings.

With her steady and solid approach, Roberts HAS to take her share of the credit for that.

We wish her all the best!

Robin, I know what it feels like to wake up every morning wondering about the unknown of the next second , minute, hour, day, month and year. See, I too I’m a breast cancer survivor. Believe me I know and feel in my heart that God did not bring you (us) this far to turn his head. I once woke up each morning and thought, as I looked at myself in the mirror one breast now will I get through the day, I’m still here. Isaiah 41:10 said’s FEAR NOT. You made it one time this is just one more hurdle cross over or basketball to throw up. You are my sister now and forever. If I could be there I would hold your hand and give you my strength, take your tears and thoughts away. I know it is still hard not to be fearful but it is ok to cry and feel what you feel after each cry you will become stronger and stronger just remember back when, my sister, just remember back when. God does not give us more than he feels we can handle. God would not give you more than he felt you could handle. I love you and kneel to my knees for you. In the name of the father, the son and the holy ghost

I’m inclined to agree with the author – I actually started watching GMA as a result of seeing a promo for a story Roberts was doing. I appreciated her sincere and respectful approach. I felt compelled to tune in to see if it was just the story or was she always so sincere. I quickly came to appreciate just how sincere she was. I will make sure to include her and the family in my prayers.

you model more important virtues.
You give us substance now through your realness, but wish you didn’t have to have this challenge. Sorry to have read in Guideposts that even you had trouble with your insurance company. I’d really have liked to think you didn’t have those sort of stressors.
