Meredith Vieira's Husband Richard Cohen Discusses Life with Multiple Sclerosis

Part of his identity

Cohen said that individuals with illnesses can still lead normal lives and even embrace their illness as who they are. He wrote that while he would trade away his battles with cancer, he wouldn’t trade in MS - “It’s who I am, it’s part of my identity. And it really is my mission. And it means so much to me to work with other people and to do the writing that I’ve done. I continue to say, you know, that I have a great life. And I have no regrets.”
