“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.

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.
