robin roberts medical leaveRobin Roberts, the iconic co-anchor of “Good Morning America,” has enjoyed being at the top of the morning show ratings over their fierce rival, NBC’s “Today.”

Though, she will need to take time away from that successful run to deal with a more serious foe: Blood and Bone Marrow Disease.

“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.

“It’s fascinating-slash-scary how to prepare yourself for something like this,” Roberts told reporters gathered for the Television Critics Association conference in Beverly Hills, Calif., via satellite from ABC’s studios in New York, according to New York’s Daily News.

Roberts – who revealed she was batting the rare disease of the blood and bone marrow in June with the subsequent news that her sister would donate bone marrow – says she feels “moments of fatigue” lately, although her job has helped her pull through.

“The [ratings] run that we’ve had has truly energized me,” said Roberts, who successfully battled breast cancer five years ago. “It’s pretty good medicine – I gotta say.”

Some possibly short-term replacements include Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Kelly Ripa and the “View” cast, according to the New York Daily News.

Let us pray for Robin Roberts’ full recovery and eventual return to the anchor desk.
