Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, revealed earlier this week his diagnosis of the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis. Jack and fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed daughter Pearl Clementine just two weeks ago. People magazine reported the 26-year-old new father was “angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’”
Experts aren’t quite sure why the characteristic inflammation and nerve damage occur, but according to the National Institutes of Health, the multiple sclerosis symptoms typically include muscle weakness, numbness or tingling sensations and problems with coordination and vision. More common in women, MS is usually diagnosed between age 20 and 40, and symptoms may start out mild, come and go or become so severe that a person becomes unable to speak or walk. Marshall of Rock sends positivity and well wishes in this life battle for Jack.
There is no known cure for MS, although Osbourne, 26, says he plans to manage the disease with medication and holistic treatments. Sharon Osbourne emotionally broke her silence on her son’s Jack Osbourne’s recent diagnosis with MS on her show ‘The Talk.’ With tears streaming down her face, Sharon thanked “everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us…” Jack and his finacee will be on ‘The Talk’ today and we’ll post that video as it becomes available.
Sharon Osbourne also stopped by ‘Conan,’ later in the day, addressing Jack’s MS diagnosis. “He is doing so amazing. He is so strong and so positive and, yes, my son will conquer.” Sharon even managed to have a laugh with Conan, revealing that hubby Ozzy has graduated from texting to sexting, and he sent her a pretty dirty pic on Valentine’s Day.
