Robin Roberts will be taking more time off from “Good Morning America” than expected, she told viewers on Tuesday.
She announced that she will be leaving for one or two weeks before her medical leave, noting that she was not feeling well. Roberts was recently diagnosed with MDS, a rare blood and bone marrow disorder, as a side effect of her battle with breast cancer.
“I had planned to let tomorrow be the last day,” she said. “And then some things happened at home and I wanna take care of that before I begin my treatment next week.
“Well, a full disclosure here, I’m not feeling too well,” Roberts told viewers, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “In fact I’m going to leave and let you all do the rest of the program on your own. I’m going to take a little time off, just to get some vacay… I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.”
