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.
