In 2012, Roberts discovered a lump on her neck. A few weeks later, after her appearance at the Oscars, she received her devastating diagnosis. The illness would have been tough, no matter what, but it came just five years after her diagnosis of and subsequent battle with breast cancer. The MDS was caused by chemotherapy treatments she received to destroy the breast cancer cells. To make matters worse, during the treatment and recovery process for MDS, her mother passed away.
As with her battle with breast cancer, Roberts didn’t hide her struggles with MDS. Rather, she made a public announcement on “Good Morning America” (which she co-hosts) and documented her journey through journaling, video broadcasts, and now this book.
The memoir’s title was inspired by Roberts’s mother, who emphasized that hard times don’t discriminate. She used to say, “Everybody’s got something,” meaning that no matter what you are going through, you can know that everybody has had something they’ve had to deal with or are dealing with now.
I’m a huge fan of Robin Roberts. She is a wonderful lady with a big smile, a huge heart, and courage almost beyond measure. So it’s only natural that I jumped at the chance to read and review her book, and I’m so glad I did. As expected, it is filled with grace, humor, love and insight. You will alternate between laughing, crying and praying as you read her inspirational story.

God bless Robin for sharing a very private part of her life with us. May God keep you strong and healthy for the rest of your life. I would tell everyone that this is a story worth reading because you never know when it could relate to you.
The book is very, very repetitive. Roberts repeats themes, sentiments, and exact lines. A lot. And did I mention it was repetitive?
