Among them is Christian Good Morning America co-host, Robin Roberts, an outspoken Believer.

Her warmth and easy-going style has endeared Roberts to millions of fans. She is also credited with helping end NBC’s Today Show’s nearly two decades long ratings winning streak.

Now that the healthy co-host is back in the anchor chair where she belongs, she yet remains thankful for her successful bone marrow transplant and beating myelodysplastic syndrome or MDS, a rare blood disorder.

It was extremely comforting,” she said in an interview with THR of the outpouring of support online, resulting from Roberts’ openness throughout the difficult process documented for viewers–something the TV personality said she received no pressure from the network to do.

“It was really organic. It was just, if I felt it was something that could be helpful, then we would go with it. GMA and ABC took their cue from me, they never came to me and said ‘we want to do this, can we do that?’” she explained.

“They just waited to hear from me. There’s no handbook. We were just figuring out as we were going, but the bottom line was whatever we thought would be most helpful.”
