Robin Roberts to Return to GMA Anchor Desk 2/20

It was announced on this morning's GOOD MORNING AMERICA that Robin Roberts will return to the morning show's anchor desk on Wednesday, February 20, five months to the day that she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder.

Said a happy Roberts, "What a difference a year makes. I cannot wait to return to my GMA family. It's going to be an incredible morning in Times Square. The overwhelming thoughts and prayers of the viewers have played a major part in getting me here today. I cannot thank everyone enough."

Roberts received the "all-clear" from her doctors when her most recent tests came back showing no abnormalities. Over the last few months, the anchorwoman has been working on regaining her strength and stamina.

It was also announced that in the weeks before Roberts' return to "GMA," the show will spotlight stories of other resilient men and women who are facing similar struggless with MDS and those she has inspired along the way. Roberts will also share her personal journey on a special edition of "20/20" on Friday, Feb. 22 at 10 p.m., ET. The Hour will offer a candid behind-the-scenes look at Roberts' experience and those who have drawn hope and courage from her example.
