Jack Osbourne Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis
It seems like every week another celebrity is announcing a change or decline in their health. Now, Jack Osbourne, famed son of legendary artist Ozzy Osbourne has revealed to the public his recent diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
First it was wife Sharon Osbourne's battle with colon cancer and now son Jack's newly-diagnosed disease. At the prime of his life, 26-year-old Jack is engaged to actress Lisa Stelly and they have a two-month old daughter named Pearl. The diagnosis couldn't have come at a worse time for Jack and his growing family and as he starts to make a real name for himself. He states:
I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, Why now? I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing.
I don't know how long he has had this or had signs of it, but hopefully it was caught before any serious damage will occur. Symptoms of MS include numbness in the arms and legs, vision loss and in extreme or advanced cases, paralysis. The disease targets the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.
I've never been a fan of Jack but no one likes to see others with debilitating diseases, especially when they are just starting out in life and have so much to do and live for. Hopefully this won't discourage Jack and his family, as I'm sure they are already stronger after Sharon's issues. Good luck to the Osbourne's, or as Ozzy would say " mumble mumble Jack mumble mumble."
