Robin Roberts updated viewers on her health and discussed the death of her mother in an interview that aired Monday on local New Orleans station WWL-TV.
The "Good Morning America" co-host, who received a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called MDS, told her sister and bone marrow donor, Sally-Ann Roberts, "It's a journey that kind of zizags, and there are complications and things like that, but I feel good. I feel stronger every day."
Roberts describes the transplant, in which she received the bone marrow from her sister more than 60 days ago, as being "reborn."
"It's a new beginning," she said. "It's like you gave me life...You gave me life. And I look at it as a clean slate and how many people can say at this point in their life that they get a do over? That they get a chance to start again? And that's how I feel, that in many ways I am starting again."
Roberts also spoke about her mother's passing days before she went to the hospital to receive the transplant.
"This is the first time that I have been through any traumatic experience without her physically being here, and it has weighed on me," she said. "She was there when I took my first breath and what an honor it was to be there when she took her last."
Portions of the interview also aired on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.
