Who doesn’t love waking up to three-time Emmy Award-winner Robin Roberts? The 52-year-old news anchor returned Good Morning America to its former glory and moved the nation with her resilience in the face of cancer and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Referring to her MDS diagnosis, Roberts bravely wrote:

“My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this –and I know it’s true…I’ve been living with this diagnosis for awhile and will continue to anchor GMA. I love what I do and the people with whom I do it. Along with my faith, family and friends, all of you at ABC News give me the motivation and energy to face this challenge.”
