“Robin is looking forward to seeing her colleagues and celebrating the joy and spirit of the holiday season. Robin has so very much to be grateful for, and she is grateful for all of the well wishes she has gotten from the GMA family and viewers. GMA will be filming the tree decorating party and it will air on Friday morning,” the insider added.

The brave broadcaster, who’s battling a blood and bone marrow disorder MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome), is wearing the mask as a precaution to prevent contact with hazardous germs, as her immune system weakened as a result of the ailment.

Roberts suffered a minor setback in her recovery when she was hospitalized last month to fight a latent virus that wasn’t responding to medication. After spending a week in the hospital, she was released and “continues to get better everyday. Robin is excited to get back to work as soon as she can,” the source said.
