Posted on

Last year was certainly a whirlwind for Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts.

The morning-show anchor received a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder, and just five months later returned to the air.

Roberts, who opened up about her experience in a PEOPLE cover story, will now be honored by fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg at the fourth annual DVF Awards at the United Nations on April 5.

Furstenberg, with co-host Tina Brown of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, will present Roberts with the Lifetime Leadership Award.

The DVF Awards were created in 2010 by von Furstenberg and The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation to recognize and support women doing extraordinary work to transform the lives of other women.
