American TV host ROBIN ROBERTS began her first course of chemotherapy on Thursday (20Sep07), in a bid to beat breast cancer.
The Good Morning America anchor is determined to keep working throughout the treatment - and even plans to appear on camera as the effects of the debilitating drugs kick in.
She says, "I'll work as much as I can. Part of the reason I am coming forward is in case you tune in and it looks like Kojak is sitting next to Diane (Sawyer), you'll understand why.
"Tomorrow (21Sep07) I will come in, and then head off for my chemotherapy."
Roberts has even been taking tips from viewers on how to cope with chemo: "Somebody said eat a lot of bacon before I have chemo. I don't know about that one. That's a new one."
Spencer Morrill believed he was in a relationship with the singer and that she was hiding messages for him in her songs.
Was the singer unknowingly taking counterfeit pain medication?
Roberts had left the band in 2012, due to problems with blood circulation and other health issues.
The popstar turned actress is back in the studio.
