The GMA star, 61, revealed in April that Amber Laign had temporarily suspended her chemotherapy treatment after suffering complications.
One fan offered her prayers to 罗伯茨 as she responded to a clip of the host sharing her “Tuesday Thoughts”.
她说: “My dear Robin – again – a perfect message for today. Amen. How’s Sweet Amber doing? I’m a (原文如此) praying.”

Roberts told 和 that despite Laign’s complications her “prognosis is still very good”.
她说: “They’re working it out. We’re gonna figure it out.”
Roberts said that she encourages Laign to stay positive.
她说: “Recently it was a little tough there when — because she just wanted to get through it and to have this wrench thrown in our way — but I was able to tell her, as most people [WHO] have gone through cancer [know], this happens.”
Roberts was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and went into remission after having treatment.
She has also battled a rare blood disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome that she contracted as a complication of the chemotherapy she received.
Roberts took a leave of absence from GMA in 2012 to undergo treatment.
The TV personality revealed that writing her book helped her come to terms with the ups and downs that she and Laign had been experiencing.
Roberts said: “I was struggling and then I was thinking, ‘Robin, you have this book. You’re talking to people about their valleys and how to get out of it and so, why don’t you just actually listen to your own words?”
“I can handle this. I have the strength. I’ve been through this. I can help Amber. She’s helping me, so I turned ‘Why me?’ into ‘Why not me?'”
Roberts revealed that she and Laign have been together almost 17 年.
她说: “It’s my turn now to be there for her as she was there for me.”
