The Good Morning America co-anchor choked back tears as she gave viewers an update on Laign's condition on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 24 after initially disclosing in February that her longtime partner was having chemotherapy for breast cancer.
Roberts, a former breast cancer survivor, told host Ellen DeGeneres, "I haven't talked about it much, but with you, I will." "It's amazing that she's doing so well."
The 61-year-old said, "I went through it twice and scarcely shed a tear." "Every time I consider what Amber is going through, I melt into a puddle. But she's coping so well because she's being so brave."

Since she had previously been diagnosed with breast cancer, Roberts said she was able to provide her boyfriend with a "bit of a roadmap." But she says Laign has also taught her how to be a good caregiver.
According to GMA anchor and Laign's companion of more than a decade Robin Roberts, "the prognosis is favourable for her," even though her chemotherapy sessions have been halted due to "complications."
The native of Alabama has always been candid about her own health difficulties, including a 2007 diagnosis of breast cancer. Myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare condition of the bone marrow, forced her to leave GMA in 2012, and she has since returned.
