Life is Beautiful, Enjoy the Ride

At the young age of 23 Mitch Koppel received a devastating diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. Twenty years of extreme health challenges inspired him to express his journey through poetry. These poems immediately went viral with friends and family to the extent that they urged him to create a book about the story and the poetry it inspired.

Mitch Koppel, 44, resides in Buffalo Grove, IL. A father of two sons, Koppel has been living with multiple sclerosis for 21 years. Up until the last few years, when the scourge of MS rendered him unable to work, he was a Vice President with one of the world's largest public/media relations firms. Aside from spending time with his boys, Koppel enjoys fishing, reading, movies and socializing with friends. His biggest passion is writing. In 2011, during a seven-week hospital/ rehabilitation stay, he started writing poetry about his health. About life - About love. After publishing a variety of poems on his Facebook page, several family members and friends urged him to write a book about his relationship with MS and related poetry. 'Life is Beautiful, Enjoy the Ride' was the net result. Writing the book was a labor of love. He hopes the book serves as inspiration to others dealing with any sort of chronic illness and serves as sort of a 'call to action' to rise up from the depths of sorrow and despair to live as productive, loving and caring as possible. This is his story.
