Jack Osbourne Diagnosed With Multiple Sclerosis

Jack Osbourne had some pretty heavy news to deliver recently. The 26-year-old has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. This has come so out of the blue and is quite a shock and the timing of it makes it even worse. Jack and his fiance, Lisa Stelley, just had a beautiful baby girl, Pearl Clementine, less than two months ago — on April 24. MS affects the central nervous system, and because of the damage to the brain and spinal cord, problems with sight, sense, balance, thinking and muscle control are caused. He found out he had the disease after losing 60 percent of the vision in his right eye. Of his condition, Jack has said, “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.” Oh man, this really sucks. We really feel for him because we’ve seen firsthand, how bad the degenerative effects can be, so we’re praying for him and his new family. Jack also added, “While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realized, being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point — if anything it’s only going to make it worse. Adapt and overcome’ is my new motto.” We’re sending our sympathies and best wishes to you, Jack.
