If you’re a Good Morning America fan like I am, you know the beautiful Ms. Robin Roberts. Her smile, her sense of humor, her compassion, and her way of making you feel like she’s the sister you never had all contribute to her allure. Robin Roberts is an inspiration to us all. Robin has overcome battles with both breast cancer and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a disease that required a bone
