Still high off her standing ovation while accepting a Peabody Award on the eight-month anniversary of her bone marrow transplant, Robin Roberts has just announced that she's releasing a memoir next year!
And we aren't talking at the END of next year… we're talking SPRING 2014!
It's true! She has sealed a deal with Grand Central Publishing to release a memoir in spring 2014, and you bet your asses she'll be talking about how it feels to have gone through the ridiculous amounts of health trouble she's been through — and to remain victorious!
While the final picture might be graphic (AFTER THE JUMP), it's totally astounding!
The victim was a 33 year-old man who had his face completely torn off in an accident that also crushed his jaw. He had the total face transplant only a few weeks after narrowly surviving — and just six days after the surgery, he was shown making a thumbs-up gesture from his hospital bed!
According to the doctors, it was the world's first life-saving face transplant carried out so soon after the damage. Other successful transplants took months or years to prepare, so this was pretty intense timeline-wise!
We're so glad that someone decided to donate the extra face they had lying around!
JK! LOLz! We TRULY are proud of whoever signed up to be a donor, even if they're not longer with us. It's a heroic thing to do, regardless if they've passed on!
A ton of athletes like Kevin Durant and Matt Kemp have been showing support and donating to the families affected by the devastating Oklahoma tornado earlier this week, and now the West Virginia University baseball team is getting in on the action!
Head coach Randy Mazey took the Mountaineers to their local Walmart where the boys stuffed their carts with clothes, food, and other supplies for all of the victims in need!
Ch-ch-check out their inspirational shopping spree (above)!
It definitely shows that the players are more than happy to take some time and help out any way they can, especially since a few of them are actually from Oklahoma!
We have to give MAJOR props to West Virginia University for this amazing act of kindness!
There is nothing about this attack that wasn't extremely horrifying — and even though Ronald Poppo seems to be in good spirits, we still can't help but wish it had never happened to him in the first place!
If you recall, Miami was struck with a shocking display of violence last year that started a nation-wide scare when it came to a drug people were using called "bath salts." That attack resulted in Ronald losing his nose, his eyes, and 80% of his face — because the attacker on the drug was EATING HIM ALIVE. (disturbing post-surgery photo featured AFTER THE JUMP)
