Amy Robach is the anchor of the successful TV show Good Morning America. Thus she is in a great position to convey a public service message. She, unwillingly, agrees to undergo a mammogram on air and this perhaps saved her life. The mammogram reveals malignant tumours and the book, which is a poignant memoir, tells of her subsequent battle. The treatment includes a double mastectomy, eight sessions of chemo, and breast reconstructions. Robach tells of her experiences with the cancer diagnosis and treatment and to put it in context she also talks of her life and marriages. This is a story of love, relationship and friendship. More importantly, it is a story of how one diagnosis can change the course of many lives. Robach tells a beautiful tale and her line, "What a remarkable reminder that none of us can actually control what happens. We can only control the grace with which we react," sums it all up.
