Robin Roberts Returns to 'GMA' with Warm Wishes from the Obamas
“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts is back on the job today after undergoing a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder.
“I keep pinching myself and I realize that this is real. This is really happening," Robin said of returning to the show. "Faith, family and friends have brought me to this moment and I am so full of gratitude."
While her friends, including co-anchor George Stephanopoulos were on hand to greet her, the welcoming party included a special message from the Obama family as well.
President Obama said, "Good morning America and welcome back Robin," while Michelle added, "Robin, we just want you to know that the whole Obama family -- we've been thinking about you and praying for you and rooting for you every step of the way."
Stephanopoulos told viewers, "The froggy slippers are off and she's back in Times Square five months to the day from her bone-marrow transplant. Her doctor’s giving her the thumbs-up, she's been getting into fighting shape, all of Team Robin here and across the country give a big welcome right now."
