Robin Roberts has finally set an official date for her departure from Good Morning America.

She begins her medical leave this Friday so she can have a bone-marrow transplant.

The transplant is for her myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a disease that attacks her blood and bone marrow.

Luckily, her sister is a perfect match.

Robin said:

"[She] is a perfect match and she's been spending a lot of time with me. She's been taking shots to help her prepare."

The surgery is scheduled for Tuesday and after a few weeks of recovery, she DEF plans on going back to GMA.

She said:

"I know I'm going to have a job when I come back."

We're sure you will!

We know the whole nation will be glad to see you again, but for now, we just wish you a successful procedure and a full recovery!
