ABC newscaster Robin Roberts arrives at the 43rd annual Country Music Association Awards in Nashville November 11, 2009.

Robin Roberts is preparing for the release of her memoir, "Everybody's Got Something," which will delve deep into her struggle with disease.

The "Good Morning America" host was treated for breast cancer as well as a rare and debilitating blood disorder known as MDS, all while under the scrutiny of the public eye. However, today, 53-year-old Roberts has restored her health and has not been back in the hospital since April 2013. The anchor has also resumed her post on "GMA."

"I feel like I am a walking miracle," she told People magazine this week.

Roberts, who joined ABC News in 1995 and became the co-anchor of "GMA" in 2005, is releasing her brand new memoir "Everybody's Got Something" in just a few days.

"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," Roberts writes in the book's description on Amazon.com. "As momma always said, 'Everybody's got something.'"

In the book, Roberts admits to concealing her health scare during the 2012 Oscars when she initially found a lump in her neck. Also, upon learning about the rare blood disease, Roberts revealed a willingness to live.

"Even though it meant more chemo, even though I know that my immune system would be destroyed and then rebuilt again, cell by cell, I had only one thought: I want to live," Roberts writes, according to the New York Daily News.

Furthermore, Roberts, who revealed she was gay last year, also shared the reactions she received at the time, and took the opportunity to single out her supporters in "Everybody's Got Something."

"I want to sing a praise song for the love that carried me through," she wrote, according to NY Daily News.

"Everybody's Got Something" features writing by Roberts as well as Veronica Chambers and it will be available on April 22.
