Today she wrote on her blog, “Last Sunday to lift my spirits I threw a little party at my apartment for my “GMA” family. The next morning I walked through the hospital doors, with my guardian angels — mom & dad — back together and blazing a trail ahead of me.

“The start of last week went well but the daily chemo/treatment caught up to me by the weekend. My body is so weak but not my mind. YOU give me the courage to keep going. So today is my last day of chemo…Wednesday is called a day of rest, yay, right! The transplant is scheduled for Thursday morning. Bless you & Onward!”

In June, Robin revealed she has myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder. It's believed she contracted the condition due to treatment she received for breast cancer five years ago. Her sister Sally is the donor of the transplant and Robin said, when a bone marrow transplant is done, you "don't have an immune system for a while and you're very susceptible to infection."

Good luck Robin! We're wishing you the best.
