She’s been quite brave in the weeks leading up to her bone marrow transplant, and today (September 20) Robin Roberts goes under the knife.

The “Good Morning America” host delivered a previously-filmed message on her show this morning, and her resolve to beat her myelodysplastic syndrome was nothing short of heroic.

From her hospital bed, Robin shared, "This journey is as much about the mind as it is the body. Your thoughts … are so powerful. You’ve got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel. And let me just say this lastly, I feel the love and I thank you for it. Thank you."

Roberts’ doctor is impressed with how she’s been handling her pre-operation chemotherapy regimen. "Medically speaking, she is doing fantastic. I think she misses her mother. She is in remarkable spirits."
