On a recent episode of The Talk, Sharon Osbourne addressed her son’s recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. The woman accustomed to her own ups and downs in the reality show The Obsbournes was confronted with a problem that caused her to breakdown on The Talk.
Sharon reprimanded herself on screen for her tears of “self-pity” and instead tried to focus on the positives. She began to thank those who have shown support saying, “Just thank you to everyone, for all their good wishes it’s been amazing, but for Jack cause I really believe that vibes of prayer help.”
Multiple Sclerosis, better known as MS, is a disabling disease that the body’s defense system attacks the central nervous system. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 2.5 million people in the world have this disease. The symptoms and severity range with each person. The disease can cause fatigue, loss of muscle coordination, tremors, slurred speech, blindness, partial or complete paralysis.
Although Jack Osbourne seems young to be diagnosis with the autoimmune disorder, reportedly typically people are diagnosed between the ages of twenty and fifty. Currently, there is no cure for the disease but there are several treatments that can slow down the course of MS.
Earlier in the week, Jack Osbourne released his diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis to People magazine. Jack told People, “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.”
Several weeks ago the 26-year-old became a father with his fiancée Lisa Stelly. Their daughter, Pearl Clementine, was born on April 24. With good news comes bad news for Jack; the diagnosis was given after the young reality star had lost 60 percent of his vision in the right eye.
Jack will be joining his mother on “The Talk” Wednesday, June 20 to discuss his recent diagnosis.
