Robin Roberts tapes video message right before going under the knife for bone marrow transplant
New York, NY, United States (4E) – GMA news anchor Robin Roberts has sent out a message to everyone a day before she is to undergo bone marrow transplant.
The video message, aired on GMA Wednesday, shows Roberts, 51, sitting in her hospital room wearing sweatshirt, blue jeans, simple flats and a purple cap while holding a drink.
In her message, she said, “This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body,” Roberts said. “Thoughts are so powerful. You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel.”
Then, looking at the camera, she topped it off with, “And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it. Thank you.”
This follows Tuesday’s heartfelt message about her last day of chemotherapy and updating her supporters about her life. She also said, “YOU give me the courage to keep going…Bless you & Onward!”
