“Good Morning America” co-host Robin Roberts, who has been battling her own serious health problems the last few years, lost her mother on Thursday night, according to a report on an ABC News affiliate.
Robin Roberts was planning to leave “GMA” on Friday on an extended medical leave, but left one day early to be with her ailing mother.
“This morning is a memory I will cherish forever. Thank you and bless you. Sally-Ann and I are on our way to be with our beloved mother. X0,” Robin Roberts tweeted Thursday afternoon.
The TV veteran announced earlier this year that she’s been diagnosed with the rare blood disorder myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). In 2007 Roberts was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer and underwent surgery.
