Irvington’s Meredith Vieria is letting us know about a fantastic blog by her husband, journalist and author Richard M. Cohen.
“Husband Richard has blog http://richardmcohen.com,” the talk show host tweeted to her fans on Monday. “Writing, video stem cell trial &MS. Strong words, pictures. We are learning. Sharing”
Cohen, who was diagnosed with MS in 1973 and survived cancer twice, hopes to make a difference with the blog, titled Journeyman.
“My new blog will not be sexy, though serious sounds pretty good,” he wrote on the website last week. “I hope it will touch lives. I plan to write about coping with chronic illness. Please hear me out. I have been there, and I care. This is a subject that actually matters to regular people.”
“We are a community,” he continued in the post. “This blog can be our gathering place. We will help each other over obstacles, take an arm or hand and tell another that he or she is not traveling alone. ”
The Emmy-winning journalist will also tackle other topics in his writing.
“I plan to discuss more than sickness,” he wrote. ” There is the press, though some might argue the two are redundant. I spent decades in various newsrooms and have a lot to say.”
