“People” magazine reports that Roberts will likely take her medical leave at the end of August or early September. She revealed in June that she has been battling the disease and that she will get a transplant from her sister.
“People” has more on Robert’s health and plans moving forward:
As ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today show continue to vie for ratings, Robin Roberts is taking time out to focus on her own battle, with myelodysplastic syndrome.
The anchor, 51, expects to take a medical leave in late August or early September from her morning show, which has reigned over Today for the past four weeks, to undergo a bone-marrow transplant.
