Robin Roberts' strength has really been tested in the past few months.
Most recently, as we previously mentioned, with the death of her mother.
Luckily, she was able to be there when he mother passed, holding her hand as she took her last breath.
"My family tells me momma gave me one final gift as her last act. She waited for me to get home on Thursday to say goodbye. She was there when I took my first breath and what a privilege to hold her sweet hand when she took her last breath."
Excuse us, we need to go grab a tissue.
We can't imagine what she's going through, with having to find the will to continue fighting her disease, right after losing her mother.
She's taking a very positive approach to everything though, saying:
"Momma knew she wasn't physically able to be with me for my bone marrow transplant. My siblings say mom wanted to spare me the agony it would have been if she had passed and I couldn't be there. That thought was weighing heavily on me. When I return to NYC and walk through those hospital doors next week momma will be right there with me."
We know she'll watch over her and make sure her operation is a complete success.
We wish Robin peace and nothing but a full recovery.
