Robin Roberts Bracelet - ‘Tears of joy and gratitude’ were the words of Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts as she sat down to experience her farewell. What others may have noticed where her neon colored bracelets (more on that later).
Co-host Josh Elliott announced her leave along with their staff lined up behind the couch holding Team Robin signs and later the show’s executive Tom Cibrowski who presented Robin with a tribute book. Boxes of tissue were on deck for the tears.
Soon after country star Martina McBride belted out “I’m Gonna Love You Through It” with Robin crying and singing along with her sister, her bone marrow donor, Sally-Ann.
After beating breast cancer five years ago Roberts was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (commonly called “MDS”).
“It’s rare to have MDS and mine was because of complications from the breast cancer treatment. I know the journey ahead will not be easy, but I’m going to focus on all these gifts.”
She’s expected to be out for several months and her GMA team will be waiting.
“I am very blessed,” she added. “Forty percent of Americans can’t even take a sick day, and here I know that I’m going to have a job when I come back.”
The bracelet has Robin’s initials: RRR for Robin Renee Roberts. The words: Light, Love, Power, Presence represent a prayer her mother taught her years ago.
“The light of God surrounds me, the love of God unfolds me, the power of God protects me, the presence of God watches over me, wherever I am, God is.”
The bright spring colors indicate the rebirth her bone marrow transplant will bring.
