HipHollywood has learned that morning show host Robin Roberts was hospitalized last week with an “opportunistic infection.” The GMA anchor revealed the news on her Facebook account Thursday, saying she fell ill while vacationing in Florida.
“In the middle of my Key West vacation, I began not to feel well. Nothing serious, just under the weather. I contacted my doctors and flew back to NYC. They felt it best to admit me into the hospital for a few days. Seems my young immune system needed a little boost to fight off ‘opportunistic infections’”, the 52-year-old wrote.
The Good Morning America talent was forced to take a six month medical leave last year to undergo a life-saving bone marrow transplant after she contracted myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder.
