Robin has written on her blog about how she doing her best to keep a positive outlook as she prepares for her bone-marrow transplant on Thursday, Sept. 20! Read on for all the details.
The Good Morning America anchor, 51, who took an extended medical leave on Aug. 30 to begin chemotherapy treatment, wrote on her Robin’s Journey blog, “The start of last week went well, but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend,” on Tuesday, Sept. 18. She continued, “My body is so weak, but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going.”
“Last Sunday, to lift my spirits, I threw a little party at my apartment for my ‘GMA’ family,” Robin continued. “The next morning, I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels – mom & dad – back together and blazing a trail ahead of me.” Robin lost her 88-year-old mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, shortly after taking her medical leave.
Robin’s bone-marrow transplant is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 20. She will be receiving the transplant from her sister, Sally-Ann Roberts. We wish Robin all the best as she undergoes her treatment.
