Robin Roberts Updates Viewers on Treatment Status

Robin Roberts provided Good Morning America fans an update on the status of her chemotherapy treatment and impending bone marrow transplant via her ABC blog, telling them “My body is weak but not my mind.”

Last Sunday to lift my spirits I threw a little party at my apartment for my “GMA” family.  The next morning I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels -- mom & dad -- back together and blazing a trail ahead of me. 

The start of last week went well but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going.

So today is my last day of chemo... Wednesday is called a day of rest, yay, right! The transplant is scheduled for Thursday morning.

Bless you & Onward!

Holding a picture of my two guardian and dad.

The journey continues today as I head to the hospital and begin the process of returning to full health.

Are you in agreement? Grateful to those who have shared their stories with me.

As momma use to say: "We all got somethin'!"

Lifting you up as you have for me...This too shall pass.

Oh, by the way, as my friend India.Arie sings...I am NOT my hair.

Onward and looking upward. Blessings to all...XO
