Robin Roberts is a brave woman — nobody can argue that.
She's been through breast cancer, and she's now recovering from an extensive bone-marrow transplant from just 5 months ago. She's battle-hardened, wise, and can take on anything.
Here's what she said about having a shaved head this time around:

Khloe Kardashian has NO QUALMS asking for help and using her online power to find it — and we LOVE that she's willing to do that!
Unfortunately, it's not a happy situation: her cousin Cici is currently battling cancer, and needs a bone marrow transplant. So she has asked her fans and followers for help in finding Cici a donor!

Aww! Disappointing news to say the least!
As much as we miss her smiling face every morning, Robin Roberts is not returning to our TVs any time soon.
The talented Good Morning America host is expected to stay sidelined until May at the earliest.
Doctors insist she's recovering from her bone marrow transplant right on schedule, but we bet she's itching to get back into the studio!
And we know her fans — us included — are going through severe withdrawal!
We hope your holiday has been relaxing, Robin! Get well soon!

We previously mentioned that Robin Roberts had her bone marrow transplant.
The five minute procedure was quick and easy, but it'll take a while to see if the procedure is actually helping her.
So because of the length of the recovery time, she won't be returning to Good Morning America anytime soon.

Robin Roberts had her bone marrow transplant yesterday!
The procedure only took five minutes!
Her sister's donor cells were injected into her and now they just have to wait.
During this time, she's very vulnerable because they basically just hit the reset button on her immune system.
The doctor who is treating Robin said the following about it:

Today is the day!
Robin Roberts is having her bone marrow transplant today.
She must be nervous but we're so glad it's finally here and she can get it over with.
She's been blogging about her journey back to health and recently posted a video (above).
