Robin Roberts returned to Good Morning America this past Wednesday, five months to the day since she underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a rare blood disorder. A special edition of 20/20 airing tonight, Feb. 22, entitled “Robin’s Journey,” will look at Robin Roberts’ challenging fight against MDS.
The one-hour “Robin’s Journey” includes never-before-seen private moments, beginning with the pre-transplant treatment, through Roberts’ time in the hospital, to the “all clear” moment to her return to Good Morning America this week, along with the many challenging times and milestones along the way.
Diane Sawyer, who was alongside Robin Roberts during Roberts’ earlier breast cancer battle, was again by her side this time, and in “Robin’s Journey,” the two friends sit down together and reflect on the past year. Also helping Robin Roberts tell her story are close colleagues and friends, including George Stephanopoulos, Sam Champion, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Dr. Richard Besser. Additionally, “Robin’s Journey” showcases the people who inspired Robin Roberts, as well as those who gained inspiration from her hope and determination.
“Robin’s Journey,” a special edition of 20/20, airs Feb. 22 at 10pm ET on ABC.
