Robin Roberts is in the hospital as we type this.
She is about to undergo a bone marrow transplant that will keep her off the Good Morning America air for weeks and cause her great physical distress.
But the role model of an anchor still found time to send a message of hope and gratitude to her fans, filmed from her hospital bed in New York City.
"This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body. Your thoughts... are so powerful," Roberts says in the video, which you can watch at Good Morning America's Yahoo! page. "You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel. And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it. Thank you."
Roberts' physician, Dr. Gail Roboz, appeared today on GMA and said of his famous patient: "Medically speaking, she is doing fantastic."
We're so glad to hear it. And we continue to send our very best wishes to Roberts and her loved ones.
