Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts has had her share of health battles.
In 2007 she was diagnosed with and beat breast cancer. More recently the anchor was diagnosed with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome, which is a disease of the blood and bone marrow that could lead to fast-growing and severe leukemia called acute myelogenous leukemia.
Understandably, Robin has had to be off the air due to this diagnosis and TMZ has now learned that she most likely will not be returning to GMA until May 2013 at the earliest, though a June return date seems more probable; the bigwigs over at GMA were hoping she would be back by February.
Sources involved with GMA that spoke to TMZ said that due to Robin’s “extremely weak” immune system, an earlier comeback might prove to be too much of a risk.
However, it’s not all bad news- Robin’s doctors are “pleased with her progress and say she’s right on schedule,” according to TMZ sources, which is really what’s important at the end of the day.
Robin is said to be receiving lots of love via cards and emails, and the GMA bosses are hopeful that Robin’s return will boost their ratings even higher because, at the end of their day, that’s really what’s important.
We’re wishing you all the best for a speedy and full recovery Robin!
