Back in October 2013, ABC news correspondent Amy Robach, 40, discovered she had breast cancer after she underwent an on-air mammogram at the urging of her Good Morning America colleague Robin Roberts. In an as-yet-untitled memoir acquired by Ballantine Bantam Dell, Robach will chronicle her living with and treating her cancer while continuing her career at ABC News and raising a family with her husband Andrew Shue.
“This is completely unchartered territory for me. I have covered the tragedies and triumphs of others for nearly 20 years as a journalist, but never before have I faced such personal fear, humility and uncertainty,” said Robach in a press release. “I want to share this road that so many have traveled before, and help pave the way for those who unfortunately will follow. Nothing is the same, everything changes, but the fight to live joyfully has been ignited.”
