Robin Roberts still standing

'Good Morning America' co-anchor Robin Roberts returns to work tomorrow (Feb. 20). The 52-year-year-old cancer survivor, who underwent a bone marrow transplant last Fall, believes she is up for the task. But friends and co-workers are not so sure. Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. Last year she learned she had a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome -- possibly a side effect of the anticancer drugs.

Another side effect of chemotherapy drugs -- baldness -- means Roberts will have to wear a custom lacefront wig on the set.

"Whatever. I'm thankful I have a pretty good shaped head," she says in an interview published in the Feb. 25th issue of PEOPLE. She is confident that her hair will grow back, but she isn't so sure about the 30-pound weight loss.

Roberts, 51, returned to the set of 'Good Morning America' on Thursday after undergoing a bone marrow transplant late last year. She completed an on-camera "test run" to determine how her fragile skin responds under the hot studio lighting.

"My skin is very sensitive and so we have to see how it reacts to the studio lights," she said. "My vision is still a little blurry from the treatment. All of this is getting better day by day so that is the next step."

Roberts was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) -- a form of blood cancer similar to leukemia. The determined anchor expects to be back at work full-time in a few weeks.
