Robin Roberts Used Weight Training and Yoga to Aid Her Return to Good Morning America

  • Just five months after a bone marrow transplant, Robin Roberts returned to the Good Morning America anchor desk this morning. Roberts was treated for a rare blood condition, myelodysplastic syndrome, also known as MDS.
  • She has used weight training and yoga to regain her strength and progress her recovery. “I love how much stronger I feel,” she said.
  • Earlier this month, Roberts’ doctors gave her an all-clear, indicating tests showed no sign of the condition and that she could return to work. To aid in that transition, ABC staff took voluntary flu shots.
  • Roberts is working closely with her doctors to ensure she doesn’t overdo it and they will decide together how many days a week she’ll be able to resume working on GMA.
  • Roberts beat breast cancer just five years ago.
  • Tune in to 20/20 this Friday for a one-hour special interview with Roberts as she takes viewers behind her inspiring story.
