ROBIN Roberts has given fans an update on her partner’s cancer battle.
The 61-year-old GMA star announced in April that Amber Laign had temporarily put her chemotherapy treatment on hold after complications.
A fan offered Roberts her prayers as she responded to a clip from the host sharing her “Tuesday thoughts.”
She said: “My dear Robin – once again – perfect news for today. Amen. How is Sweet Amber? I am a (sic) prayer.”
Roberts replied: “Thankfully she’s doing better, treatment is going well now. I hope everything is fine with you too.”
Laign was diagnosed with breast cancer late last year.
Roberts told ET that despite Laign’s complications, her “prognosis is still very good.”
She said: “They are working on it. We’ll find out.”
Roberts said she encourages Laign to stay positive.
She said: “It was a bit difficult there recently when – because she just wanted to get through and have that wrench thrown in our way – but I could tell her, like most people [who] went through cancer [know]happens.”
Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and went into remission after undergoing treatment.
She has also battled a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome, which she contracted as a complication of the chemotherapy she received.
The disorder led to her taking a leave of absence from the GMA in 2012 to undergo treatment.
The TV personality told the outlet that writing her book helped her come to terms with the ups and downs she and Laign had experienced.
“I was struggling and then I was like, ‘Robin, you have this book. You talk to people about their valleys and how to get out of them, and why not just listen to your own words? ‘” Roberts said.
“I can handle it. I have the power. I’ve been through it. I can help Amber. She’s helping me, so I was like, ‘Why me?’ in ‘Why Not Me?'”
Roberts revealed that she and Laign have been together for almost 17 years.
She said, “Now it’s my turn to be there for her like she was there for me.”
