Amber had to stop her breast cancer treatment before due to some issues

Yes, you heard it right, Amber had to pause her treatment at one point due to some complications with the chemotherapy. In April, Robin talked about her partner Amber’s treatment and told Entertainment Tonight, “They’re working it out. We’re gonna figure it out. The prognosis is still very good.”

Laign’s spirits took a hit after she got to know about the news. Back in the day, the TV host talked about her own battle with breast cancer after receiving a diagnosis in 2007. Robin further added, “But I was able to tell her, as most people [who] have gone through cancer [know], this happens.”

When did Robin’s partner Amber get diagnosed with breast cancer?

Roberts disclosed that her partner Amber had been diagnosed with breast cancer in February. The two of them have been dating since the year 2005. The TV personality went on to say that Laign got diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of 2021.

Then, Robin posted a video on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which she revealed that she will be stepping away from the morning show from time to time to support her partner Amber Laign as she undergoes chemo treatment for breast cancer.

In the video, From the Heart: Eight Rules to Live By author said, “My sweet Amber wanted me to tell you something that she’s been facing. At the end of last year, Amber was diagnosed with breast cancer.”

Roberts went on to say that her partner Amber had surgery in January and continued, “She had surgery last month and this morning will begin chemotherapy.” She stated that the duo wanted to keep the news of the diagnosis private till they were ready to share it with the public.

Robin continued, “She and I have been together almost 17 years and have helped each other through our challenges like my journey with cancer. It’s my turn now to be there for her like she was for me.”

Robin talked about her partner Amber’s journey with breast cancer on ‘Ellen Show’

While making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April, Robin got pretty emotional when she began talking about Amber’s diagnosis and she told Ellen how the two of them have been holding up.

Robin told Ellen, “I went through it twice, barely shed a tear. I’m a puddle every time I think about what Amber is going through. But she is being so courageous and is handling it extremely well.”

Roberts continued, “I didn’t realize how much I had blocked out during my journey, and it was because of sweet Amber—because she protected me and navigated for me. So, I’m doing the same thing for her.”

Over the years, Robin has also witnessed her fair share of health scares. She was also diagnosed with breast cancer in the year 2007. At that point in time, she was able to beat the disease but nearly five years later she got diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare bone marrow disease.

It was a very hard time for Roberts and her near and dear ones. Then, also she took some time off Good Morning America to focus on her health. Luckily, her sister Sally-Ann Roberts was a perfect match for the procedure and she received the bone-marrow transplant.

We hope that Robin Robert’s partner Amber Laign gets well soon. Send your best wishes to her in the comments section below. Don’t forget to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
