Roberts' speech steals show at ESPYs
Robin Roberts stole the show at the ESPYs on Wednesday night with an emotional speech after winning the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
Roberts, the beloved "Good Morning America" anchor who began her career at ESPN, announced that she's winning her fight with MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome, which she was diagnosed with last year and required a bone marrow transplant. Roberts also survived a bout with breast cancer five years ago.
"There are many worthy of holding this honor, others who have exhibited far more courage, strength and resilience, and it's humbling for me to represent you tonight," Roberts said after being presented with the award by LeBron James. "I draw strength from you. You give me the courage to face down any challenge, to know when fear knocks, to let faith answer the door."
