"I am humbled that many have an interest, and draw strength from my on-going journey," said Roberts.
Robin Roberts will release a memoir about her fight against myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and bone marrow disease, shares the Hollywood Reporter.
The yet-to-be-titled book will hit shelves in April 2014 and will be published by Grand Central Publishing, an imprint of the Hachette Book Group.
“I am humbled that many have an interest, and draw strength from my on-going journey,” said Roberts. “I’m grateful for the prayers and well wishes of so many people. I’m thrilled that Jamie Raab and Grand Central Publishing will help me tell my story.”
Raab shared her excitement about the deal in a statement as well. “I have long admired Robin Roberts’ career and courage and am so honored to publish her book,” she said. “Her story is both dramatic and inspiring, and will capture the incredible spirit that has endeared her to all of us who have followed her remarkable career and life.”
Roberts was diagnosed with the rare blood disorder last year and took several months off from work after undergoing a bone marrow transplant. She returned to the anchor chair at Good Morning America in February and has since been recovering quite well despite few setbacks. “I feel great,” said Roberts in an interview. “I feel the best I’ve felt in a long time—and I mean that sincerely.”
