Along with many people in the country I became aware of Robin Roberts diagnosis of MDS and pending bone marrow transplant while watching Diane Sawyer on ABC Nightly News. This book is astonishingly honest and refreshingly upbeat as Roberts tells the shock of discovering once again she had to fight for her life. Roberts, a hall of fame college basketball player and host on ABC’s Good Morning America T.V. show tells the story of her recent bone marrow transplant. This new diagnosis was apparently an unusual complication of her prior chemotherapy for breast cancer. All her family was tested for a match and her sister Sally Ann was a match and was willing to donate her bone marrow stem cells to Robin. Just prior to beginning the critical phase of the procedure her Mother died. She tells how she manages to deal with the grief and the transplant together. The books co-author is Veronica Chambers. Roberts tells about all the people from close friends, family, colleagues from ABC and ESPN as well as viewer of GMA supported her in her recovery. She tells how fortunate she has been in having a great supportive family. Following her mother’s advice to make her mess her mission, Roberts is pushing for publicity for transplant donors. The book is well written with candor and optimism and is a remarkable book that offers a blueprint for handling crisis in one’s life. Robin Roberts did an excellent job narrating the book.

Having just come out of a season of loss, this book was a real life saver. Thank you Robin for writing it, and for sharing some of your (and family) philosophies. Its so true -- everyone's got something, so dust it off and keep after it. Pray, love and be true. That is all that matters.
