The mother of “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts has died, ABC News reported early Friday.

Roberts made it home to Mississippi to see her 88-year-old mother, who died Thursday evening, according to the news network.

The morning show host was preparing to leave the show Friday to take an extended medical leave, but left a day early to help her ailing mother.

The anchor’s extended medical leave follows her June announcement that she’s been diagnosed with MDS, a rare blood disorder that affects the bone marrow

Her sister, Sally-Ann, is a match, and the “GMA” host is scheduled to start her treatments for a bone marrow transplant next week.

“There’s a point that really resonates with me when I think about this time of my life. Life provides losses and heartbreak for all of us, but the greatest tragedy is to have the experience and miss the meaning. I am determined not to miss that meaning, because through it I have discovered that I have been given many gifts, gifts that will carry me through this difficult time.”- Robin Roberts

Robin has been taking us with her on the very private journey of her illness. Our prayers are with her at this trying time.
