Robin Roberts, co-anchor for "Good Morning America," has announced that she's working on a memoir detailing her heroic fight against a rare blood disorder.
"I am humbled that many have an interest, and draw strength from my on-going journey," Roberts said in a statement. “I’m grateful for the prayers and well wishes of so many people."
According to Grand Central Publishing, Roberts will detail her battle against myelodysplastic syndrome, the life lessons she continues to learn, and her inspiring return to the "GMA" anchor desk.
Said Jamie Raab, president and publisher of Grand Central Publishing: “I have long admired Robin Roberts’s career and courage and am so honored to be publishing her book. 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, who recently celebrated the eight-month anniversary of her bone marrow transplant, received the George Foster Peabody Award on Monday for chronicling her health problems on "Good Morning America."
The as-yet untitled book and audio book will be released in April 2014.
