Robin Roberts inundated with support on the ten-year anniversary of her return to GMA following MDS battle

Fans of Robin Roberts know that they can always count on her wise words by way of her daily morning message and prayer.

Her latest is nothing short of inspirational, as she reflected on a family miracle that saved her life when she needed a bone marrow transplant.

In 2013, the Good Morning America star was diagnosed with bone marrow myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare form of blood cancer, which left her needing stem cells from someone who was a match.

Ten years later, she reflected on the miracle that was her sister Sally-Ann, whose stem cells she used for the life-saving treatment.

“There are people God puts in our path who are not going to win by themselves,” she first said, adding: “They are praying for a miracle.”

Robin got emotional as she moved on to the daily prayer, saying: “Father thank you, thank you that you bring people across our paths, so we can be the answer to their prayers and help them. Thank you, that we can speak a kind word, lift them up when they’re hurting, and encourage them to follow their dreams. Help us to become their miracle.”
