Robin Roberts of GMA Mother Dies at 88 Years Old

On Thursday August 30, 2012 Lucimarian Tolliver, Mother of Robin Roberts from Good Morning America, passed away at the age of 88.  Robin Roberts, who was due to take an extended leave of absence starting today decided to take that leave a couple days early to be with her ailing mother. 

In a note from Senior Producer of Good Morning America Tom Cibrowski this was said.

"Robin arrived home with sister Sally Ann, forging through flooded and blocked roads to be with her beloved mother in time to see her."

Lucimarian Tolliver is said to be one of the first African Americans to head the Mississippi Board of Education and the main person from where Robin Roberts gets her strength and self determination.

As many of us already know, Robin Roberts has fought throught breast cancer and is now batteling a rare blood disorder by the name of MDS which is said to be a result of the chemotherapy from her battel with breast cancer.  She is due to have a bone marrow transplant from her sister who is an exact match. 

My prayers are with Robin Roberts as she deals with the death of her mother and her health issues.  I am also praying for a successful bone marrow transplant procedure and that she returns to 100% real soon.!
