Every­body’s Got Some­thing

Maxx-M - - HAPPY HOUR - By Robin Roberts and Veron­ica Cham­bers

“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 Good Morn­ing Amer­ica an­chor Robin Roberts new mem­oir in which she re­counts the in­cred­i­ble jour­ney that has been her life so far, and the lessons she’s learned along the way. With grace, heart, and hu­mour, 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 Good Morn­ing Amer­ica 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, age­ing 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.
