"Regardless of how much money you have, your race, where you live, what religion you follow, you are going through something. Or you already have or you will. As momma always said, "Everybody's got something."

So begins beloved Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts's new memoir in which she recounts the incredible journey that's been her life so far, and the lessons she's learned along the way. With grace, heart, and humor, she writes about overcoming breast cancer only to learn five years later that she will need a bone marrow transplant to combat a rare blood disorder, the grief and heartbreak she suffered when her mother passed away, her triumphant return to GMA after her medical leave, and the tremendous support and love of her family and friends that saw her through her difficult times.

Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message," Robin taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something -- a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms --- we've also all got something to give: hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace. As Robin has learned, and what readers of her remarkable story will come to believe as well, it's all about faith, family and friends. And finding out that you are stronger, much stronger, than you think.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 28, 2014 – In this soulful memoir, the host of Good Morning America recounts her recent struggle with illness and path to recovery. The book begins in 2012, when Roberts was first diagnosed with MDS (a disease sometimes referred to as pre-leukemia), and traces step-by-step her experiences through the treatment that included a bone marrow transplant from her sister, Sally-Ann, all the way to her triumphant return to morning television. Fortunately, Roberts recovers from the risky and often excruciating process with support from family and many friends, including colleagues Diane Sawyer and Dr. Richard Besser. The author's beloved mother, who passed away right before Roberts was admitted to the hospital, is the driving force in this story of resilience; even the title is inspired by something her mother used to say. Roberts contemplates the experience with a mix of gravity, courage and humor, saying, "I traveled so far on a combination of faith and science." She offers readers a deeply intimate and endearing glimpse into the human side of battling illness.

Thanks for sharing!

I have just spent a year going through treatment for breast cancer and during my last 2 chemos I spent time with my Mom who was placed in Hospice, who just a month ago passed away! I too was with my Mom when she went home! When I heard Robin had written this book I just had to read it - knowing how I could relate to everything in the book. When I look back over my year this saying sums up my thoughts, "I am thankful for my struggle, because without it, I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength."


This is a book that is very hard to put down. Amazing.


This is one of the best books I have read! I couldn't put it down. Robin you are such an amazing, strong woman! Your love of family and friends is so strong! I wish I had known your mother, her words are so powerful.
