My MS and E
Kevin and Eleanor share an unbreakable father-daughter bond, even in the face of his ongoing struggles with multiple sclerosis. This story is a heartwarming tale of how they grow, learn, struggle, and celebrate life in their mantra of Never Stop… Never Quit…
A typical, cherished interaction inspired one of my 2015 Bike MS blogs. That story took on a life of its own. Now, Eleanor and I are proud to announce the release of our children’s picture book.
100% of the profits earned from this book will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, in support of our fight against MS.
About Kevin Byrne (Portland, Oregon Author)
Kevin was born and raised in New York City. A graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1999, while serving overseas in command of a US Army Air Cavalry Troop. He is now medically retired and lives in Portland, Oregon with his daughter, Eleanor.
Kevin devotes much of his time and energy towards overcoming the challenges of his own MS, so he can fight for others. He began writing and blogging in 2010, for the Department of Veterans Affairs, the National MS Society, and then NEVER STOP NEVER QUIT, a charitable foundation he co-formed to further expand his fundraising and advocacy in the fight against MS. Several of his stories are now under preparation for publication, spanning a wide variety of genres.
