Around the Web: Robin Roberts Takes Immediate Medical Leave

8

It appears that Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts is taking an immediate medical leave of absence. This is sad to hear. She’s currently fatigued from her fight with Blood & Bone Marrow Disease. Robin is a true hero, having beat Breast cancer already she again in a fight for her life. One of the common overlooked facts about Blood & Bone Marrow disease is that finding donors is increasingly harder for African-Americans than any other race. We all wish her the best of luck, as we know these are tough times. Here’s an excerpt from the NY Daily News article on her decision to  temporarily leave GMA:

“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts is taking time off because she’s feeling the effects of her blood and bone-marrow disease.



Recently diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, she made the vacation announcement Tuesday on the morning show.

“Well a full disclosure here, I’m not feeling too well,” Roberts said at 8:08 a.m. “In fact, I’m going to leave, and let you all do the rest of the program on your own. I’m going to take a little time off, just to get some vacay. I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.”

Appearing upbeat and energetic, she joked with colleague Josh Elliott, and even made fun of herself for have a little trouble pronouncing a word. “I can’t talk on this side of my mouth,” she confessed.

  1. "Robin is a true hero, having beat Breast cancer already she again in a fight for her life."

    Say that again! Having to battle two major diseases in one lifetime is…just so unfair.

    I'll def be keeping her in my prayers.

  2. Age gap dating is gaining popularity and acceptance at an alarming rate. Many young women are seeking older men, and many young guys appreciate the maturity of older women. If you are over 40 & single, I would encourage you to take a try on- – – – – АgeLuv_ C○m – – – – – -to date someone much younger, to feel young again, and to make your life more adventurous.

  3. Wow I always loved Robin because she was always an advocate for student athletes. Unfortunately eating healthy and exercise but its not a guarantee of health. I registered to be a bone marrow donor when 50 cent was doing a drive. At first I hesitated because I had assumed if you were chosen they would need to crack your femur but the process can be non-surgical. You can learn about it on marrow dot org They really do need more donors or African descent because of the amount of blood diseases that effect us. Bone marrow transplants can treat sickle cell and thalassemia amongst other diseases.

  4. "….I’m not feeling too well….I’m going to leave, and let you all do the rest of the program on your own. I’m going to take a little time off, just to get some vacay.”

    I know the speech all too well. 'I'm feeling a little under the weather guys so I'm gonna hand everything off to Bob Newprojectleader; I'm very proud of all of you for blossoming so beautifully and I know you'll go far in everything we've been striving for. I hand you the reigns to your destiny and as for me? I'm gonna take a few months off and get my Sinbad Seven Seas on!" What everyone heard was a cheerful speech about me taking the summer off to go on a cruise. What they felt was a swell of joy from my accolades. What they received was a happy future and shield from the grief of losing their "only" lifeline to it. They know me to be a perfectionist, indestructible bad a*s. Someone who is perpetually operating as if she's in the clutch. The only nut to actually attempt to save the world….on her own. 100% success rate at impossible feats because of this strong armed mentality…..but what I said was an eloquent, round about last will and testament.

    1. Handing off my life's work and bottoming out my accounts was quite possibly the most liberating, breathtaking experience known to humanity. In my personal life, gifting my essence of womanhood to a man gave me a deep sense of personal satisfaction and pride and love in who I am. Unlike this Robin person I'm tired of suffering. God knows my mentality's conditioning is sucking right now. "Hang on to it by the fingernails and fight." I want to embrace how good it feels to get out of bed later and later and how easy it is to just freefall. It feels better losing this one. It's rather pleasant hearing someone else pulled out a win.

  5. Age gap dating is a worldwide phenomenon that is gaining popularity and acceptance at an alarming rate. Many young women are seeking older men, and many young guys appreciate the maturity of older women, because they assume older men and older women are more stable, mature, confident, and capable of supporting whoever they are with.

  6. Both these things can help a person in losing weight; dieting
