Robin Roberts

After chemotherapy treatments, Robin Roberts didn’t want her wig to distract viewers from the news on Good Morning America. But she soon realized that she could share an implicit strength with viewers and other survivors by not wearing it; so she took it off on air. "I am not my hair," Roberts said. "I am the soul that lies within and that's it -- no more wig. That's it."
