    Thumbs up Prayers for GMA host Robin Roberts

    Robin Roberts faces another health battle. Prayers offered for her, may she be victorious in this latest challenge.

    Robin Roberts said goodbye Thursday to her "Good Morning America" co-workers and audience. But only for a while.

    "See you later. See you soon. I'll get back as soon as I can," she promised at the close of her emotional send-off from the show.

    The "GMA" anchor was making her final appearance before starting medical leave for a bone marrow transplant. Her departure had originally been set for Friday, but in a last-minute change of plans she chose to exit a day early to visit her ailing mother in Mississippi, she told viewers.

    I don't often say this about people I don't "actually" know, but I just LOVE Robin.

    She is such a warm, real person and I sending healing thoughts her way.

    Robin is awesome. She has this strength about her, I hope it carries her through this latest battle. She is one of the few people on TV that I listen to and believe. I do hope her mom is ok, as well.

    Robin's mother, Lucimarian Roberts, has passed at 88. I always loved watching her when she was a guest on the show.

    (CNN) -
    "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts has lost her mother, ABC News reported early Friday.

    Roberts made it home to Mississippi to see her 88-year-old mother, who passed away Thursday evening, according to the news network.

    The morning show host was preparing to leave the show Friday to take an extended medical leave, but left a day early to help her ailing mother.

    Roberts looks stunning in the photo shown in above article She continually exudes class, elegance, and grace. My thoughts and prayers are with Robin at this difficult time.

    OH PLEASE! Robin has been watched and respected, she is a diligent morning persona on GMA who brings compassion to her stories she covers. We want to know how she is and hope the best for her, anyone trying to detract from her struggle is just being a hater. IMHO

    As a long time GMA watcher - I have thought GMA has been over the top on Robin Roberts coverage. The scenes in the room when the marrow was being transferred were repeated several times - this is NOT news. And GMA has turned into 10 minutes of news and it should be retitled to Entertainment This Morning. Mary Hart, Mary Hart! Just my opinion!

    Love Robin and wish her well and a speedy recovery!

    Any dissemination of health information in the public/media, is a good thing.There may well be some who hear Robin's story who will realize they have similar symptoms and see a doctor. Any teachable moment is a good thing.

    Well that is certainly a relationship that has withstood the trials of life.
    So glad Robin is so healthy, so classy and so happy.

    "I am grateful for my entire family, my long time girlfriend, Amber, and friends as we prepare to celebrate a glorious new year together,"
    she wrote.

    They have been together for 10 years after meeting through mutual friends.

    Is this really a revelation?

    I'm glad she won her battle with cancer but it seems to me she'll do anything to keep the spotlight on herself. Sorry but, IMO, it's been disturbing to see how she and GMA shamelessly exploited her illness for ratings.

    I agree in one sense, it became a media event.

    As for the reflective part; I am writing that myself right now, because it is the end of the year. The cancer treatment I went through this year has changed my perspective and given me a new and I believe better insight. The only thing is I don't do a tv show and I wouldn't be 'coming out'. My man and son wouldn't be too happy about it.

    I am happy for Robin that she is well and hope the best for her. When you have cancer, you always want success stories.

    Does anyone really care that she's gay? Really? Why do people feel the need to "come out"? Heterosexuals don't feel the need to discuss their sexual preferences.
