Robin Roberts Opens Up About Her Fight for Life

“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts revealed her recent health battle was very touch-and-go.
In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Roberts said there was a point after her September bone marrow transplant, "where I felt like I was dying."

Roberts underwent the transplant for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. "I couldn't eat or drink," she told People. "I couldn’t even get out of bed."

In fact, the TV journalist admitted, "I was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away… then I kept hearing my name."
Five months later, Roberts is finally ready to move forward. "It's an amazing feeling, each day feeling stronger."
She will return to “GMA” on February 20 and will be featured on a special edition of “20/20,” airing February 22.
