Christian Good Morning America Anchor ROBIN ROBERTS Covers Good Housekeeping Magazine

EEW NEWS & ENTERTAINMENT EDITORS

A vibrant-looking Robin Roberts, the Christian “Good Morning America” anchor, is covering the June 2012 issue of Good Housekeeping Magazine. In her feature story, the 51-year-old talks about how her faith is her rock when dealing with life’s ups and downs like cancer, a feeble, elderly mother, and the challenges of a high-stress job.

Five years ago, Roberts made the difficult announcement to GMA viewers that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. But the prognosis was good. The tumor was small and could be rectified with a partial mastectomy—she thought.

Good Housekeeping Magazine tells what happened on the day she found out her cancer was triple negative, meaning it was more aggressive and resistant to certain kinds of treatments.

The Day She Discovered Her Cancer was Triple Negative:

She was in Connecticut, recuperating at her weekend house. Her family was visiting her, and "they were watching me like a hawk." It was, ironically, when she begged to go into a department store by herself that her cell phone rang. Her doctor delivered the sobering news: The lymph nodes were clear, but the cancer was more aggressive than they'd originally thought. Chemotherapy would be required. "I get back to the car and I'm bawling! Bawling!" Robin says. "First they thought, We leave you alone for five minutes, and this happens! Then they got me home. That was a very bad day."

On Nurturing her Faith:

Beyond nurturing her body, Robin tends to her soul. She attends a Presbyterian church in Connecticut and is looking for a "home church" in the city. She listens to gospel music on the early-morning drive from apartment to studio. And, before that, "every day, as I walk out the door, I say a prayer of protection my mother taught me when I was working my first job far away from home." Robin recites: "The light of God surrounds me, the love of God enfolds me, the power of God protects me, the presence of God watches over me. Wherever I am, God is."

*That beautiful prayer comes from James Freeman, 1941.

    See? This is why I live in this apartment!" says Robin Roberts as she strides through her living room, a warm mix of whites, beiges, and browns with lots of pretty throw pillows on comfy couches. She reaches her apartment's wall of windows and...wow. There's the Hudson River: almost all of it, it seems, so startlingly close you could practically dive in. "I'm a water person," she says, smiling so peacefully you'd never know that she got up at 3:45 this morning (as usual) and has been on the go-g
