It’s been a day of reflection for Robin Roberts.

And in a Facebook post looking back to one year ago today, when she “reached a critical milestone of 100 days post transplant,” the Good Morning America anchor reveals she has a longtime girlfriend.

Roberts wrote today in the post that “at this moment I am at peace and filled with joy and gratitude,” and thanked God, her doctors and nurses, her sister and family and her “long time girlfriend, Amber” for their support.

“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.

While Roberts, 53, did not give her girlfriend’s last name, People identifies her as Amber Laign, a licensed massage therapist from the San Francisco Bay area who has a private practice specializing in patients recovering from injuries. She and Roberts have been together for 10 years after meeting through mutual friends.

The Facebook post also showed a photo of Roberts one year ago when she was reunited with her dog, KJ, after undergoing a bone marrow transplant she underwent in September 2012 to treat a blood and bone marrow disease. “Hard to believe this was 1 year ago today … Reading this comforts me and I hope the same for you: “If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”

Robin Roberts, who overcame breast cancer five years ago, is battling another health scare. The  “Good Morning America” anchor announced Monday that she has myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease of the blood and bone marrow, that was likely caused by her cancer treatment.

The 51-year-old anchor learned of the diagnosis on what was supposed to be a victorious day: when “GMA” beat NBC’s “Today” show in ratings for the first time in 16 years, she said in a statement on the network’s website: “Talk about your highs and lows!” Roberts said. She expects to undergo a bone marrow transplant this fall, with her sister as her donor.

“My doctors tell me I’m going to beat this — and I know it’s true,” she said in the statement. “ If you Google MDS, you may find some scary stuff, including statistics that my doctors insist don’t apply to me. They say I’m younger and fitter than most people who confront this disease and will be cured.”

Roberts will begin chemotherapy immediately.  The network’s medical correspondent, Dr. Richard Besser, also said in a statement on the website that he was consulting with Roberts about MDS, a malignant disorder of the bone marrow, sometimes known as pre-leukemia that typically affects older people and can also be triggered by cancer treatment.

Roberts will continue appearing on the morning show but is expected take several months off after the transplant to recover.

She says she will undergo chemo and a bone marrow transplant this year as “pretreatment” for the disease, which she says she has known about for several weeks. She says her sister is a great match for her. While she says she’ll miss a day here and there, she’ll remain on the air.

Topic: Chris Brown – Rihanna

Chris Brown has been in the busy long enough to  that Robin Roberts, Good Morning America and the rest of the media does not give a d-am about his new album, they know he’s a HOT HEAD and that is what’s going to sell for them.

Brown made a huge mistake by putting his hands on Rihanna. Brown should have driven Rihanna to safety, ask her to get out of his car un-harmed.

Brown is multi-talented  I fell in love with his talent however,  at the moment he’s behaving  the media wants him to.   Brown said ” people praise Charlie Sheen and other celebrities for their Bull-hit.”

Brown will always be  accused of his past actions however,  it’s up to the R&B star to remain  positive and calm.  F.A.M.E  (Forgiving All My Enemies) is the title of Brown’s  new album.

Brown must forgive himself before he can forgive all of his enemies.  Brown should  go back to anger management classes.
