This brave Sag has faced a lot—but she’s thriving!
Anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America, Robin Roberts has faced more than her share of adversity, and overcome more than her share of obstacles. But in true Sag style, she’s faced them all with courage, humor, and optimism. Robin broke barriers as ESPN’s first black female sportscaster. In 2007, she survived breast cancer. And in 2012, she defeated myelodysplastic syndrome. By going public with her battle with the rare blood disease, the number of potential bone marrow donors at Be the Match increased 1800%.
The charismatic Peabody Award winner returned to GMA in February 2013. Filled with gratitude, she told Ellen DeGeneres, “I have never been this happy nor healthy in such a long time.” A true Sagittarian through and through.
