Mary and Louis Fusco Distinguished Lecture: Robin Roberts

Friday, May 6, 2016
7:00 p.m.

Beloved “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she talks about overcoming breast cancer in 2007 - only to learn five years later that she would need a bone marrow transplant to combat MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder.  “Robin’s Story,” her reports on MDS that inspired hundreds of potential bone marrow donors to register led to a George Foster Peabody Award and other accolades, including the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2013 ESPY’s.

Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message," Robin has taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something to deal with -- a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms --- we've also all got something to give: hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace.
