The 51-year-old host of Good Morning America host has just one more day of chemotherapy until a day of rest leading up to Thursday morning’s bone-marrow transplant, and is doing her best to stay strong.
“The start of last week went well, but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend,” she wrote in her Robin’s Journey blog on Tuesday. “My body is so weak, but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going.”
Roberts, who is treating her myelodysplastic syndrome, will receive the transplant from her sister, Sally-Ann.
Roberts, who took extended medical leave starting Aug. 30, lost her ailing, 88-year-old mother, Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, shortly after her departure.
“Last Sunday, to lift my spirits, I threw a little party at my apartment for my ‘GMA’ family,” Roberts also wrote in her blog. “The next morning, I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels – mom & dad – back together and blazing a trail ahead of me.”
Jools Oliver and Petal Blossom, 3, were seen heading home in Primrose Hill, London on Monday (September 17). The wife of Jamie Oliver carried her shopping while holding the 3-year-old’s hand. Poppy Honey, 10, Daisy Boo, 9, Buddy Bear, 2, weren’t with them.
Last month Jools launched a new line with Mothercare called Little Bird. It’s described as an ‘eclectic’ collection of classic clothes, toys and bedding suitable for babies and children up to five years old.
She said, “I have such a passion for the design of children’s clothes, so to have this opportunity to work with Mothercare is just amazing. My mother dressed us in Mothercare clothes and I have done the same with my children, so Mothercare has always been part of my life.
“My designs combine both quirky and classic style inspired by my childhood memories. The collection features nostalgic, classic pieces, sprinkled with unique touches and playful attention to detail.The entire collection has been lovingly put together and accessibly priced for parents. I cannot wait to see the reaction to it.”
Singer-songwriter Jamie Lynn Spears shared a sweet snapshot with her 4-year-old daughter Maddie.
“Story time on a rainy afternoon,” the Zoey 101 star wrote via Instagram, captioning the above photo of the pretty pair reading a princess storybook.
Earlier this month, Jamie Lynn shared a cute shot of Maddie in her very own organic garden.
Maddie’s father is Jamie Lynn’s ex, Casey Aldridge.
“Casey was my first love,” Jamie Lynn has shared of her teen pregnancy. “Since the day I saw him, I just wanted to marry him and be with him forever and ever. I believe in safety and birth control as prevention. But like many young girls…I was really scared to go to the doctor.”
Candace Cameron Bure and her 14-year-old daughter Natasha attended the 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Saturday (September 15). The former Full House star posted a photo on her Twitter page showing them all dressed up for the event.
She wrote: “Thank you @VoJuliet and @pistolandstamen for styling us!”
Cameron told Glamour on the red carpet that it was her first Emmy appearance after more than 25 years in the business.
“I’m here to support a movie that I executive produced called The Heart of Christmas. It is nominated for best original song by Matthew West.”
She also also has sons Lev, 12, and Maks, 10, with husband Val Bure.
