The GMA star took to Instagram to acknowledge that it has been nearly a decade since she made her long-awaited return to the beloved morning show after recuperating from her bone marrow transplant.

In 2012, Robin underwent a bone marrow transplant after developing myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder affecting the bone marrow and sometimes referred to as preleukemia.
