VoiceQuilt and Robin Roberts: A “We Love You” Playlist
“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts is celebrating the end of chemotherapy!
Six months ago, Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, she continued hosting “Good Morning America” while fighting the disease and receiving treatment.

Before her first treatment, Roberts was given by her friends an iPod loaded with photos of them corresponding with their favorite songs to inspire her.
