First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Robin Roberts, the 52-year-old former ESPN anchor–a fitting

tribute to a woman who has shared her harrowing battle against breast cancer and myelodysplastic

syndrome (MDS) with America. Her fight and victory against the deadly disease has inspired millions.

As Roberts accepted her award, she noted that, “I didn’t find that strength on my own,” but rather, from

everyone who called, prayed, tweeted, and showed their support.Watch the beloved media personality accept the The Arthur Ashe Courage Award, which is given to

those who “reflect the spirit of Arthur Ashe, possessing strength in the face of adversity, courage in the

face of peril and the willingness to stand up for their beliefs no matter what the cost.”
