Robin Roberts

Friday Is My

Last Day at 'GMA'

breaking news

0611_robin_roberts_articleRobin Roberts will begin her medical leave from "Good Morning America" on Friday ... so she can undergo bone marrow transplant surgery.

Earlier this year, Roberts announced she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) ...  a disease that attacks the blood and bone marrow.

Roberts says her sister is the bone marrow donor ... explaining, "[She] is a perfect match and she’s been spending a lot of time with me.  She’s been taking shots to help her prepare."

Roberts says the procedure is scheduled for Tuesday ... and says she plans to return to work following her recovery.

"I know I’m going to have a job when I come back."

As TMZ previously reported, "GMA" is planning to use a roster of star-studded subs to fill in for Roberts during her absence.

I can't stand her but I wish her well. As humans we can disagree with someone viewpoint but when it comes to sickness, we care.

Hate your views
I wish you a speedy recovery

Couldn't she have pretended it was breast cancer? No one gives a **** about some random bone disease.

Dont worry Robin, GMA will still kick the "Yesterday Show's ass until you get back. Matt Lauer said pitty was the only reason GMA was ahead of Yesterday Show. What a s*** bag he is....................... Best wishes for a speedy recovery Robin..
