Now this is the way to spend an eight-month anniversary of your bone marrow transplant victory — a standing ovation while accepting an award on behalf of your ABC program at the 72nd annual George Foster Peabody Awards at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City!
Such a beautiful moment for Robin Roberts!
When she took the stage to accept the award, she said this:
"[It] is eight months to the day since my transplant. So technically I'm eight months old today."
The crowd then erupted as she accepted the award, and it really did seem like her return to Good Morning America was complete!
We LOVE this! We are so glad you're okay, Robin! Keep up the amazing work!
