Good Morning America recently featured one of our alumnae in a story about recovering after bone marrow transplants.
Asa Bright Valente ’90 was one of several people who spoke in a segment to welcome back Robin Roberts, a Good Morning America anchor who is returning to the show this week five months after receiving a bone marrow transplant to treat aplastic anemia. Focusing on the challenge of returning to work following, Valente talks about surviving leukemia, receiving a stem cell transplant, and finding renewed purpose when she returned to her school classroom.
