Jack Osbourne Reveals He Has Multiple Scleroses
An emotional Sharon Osbourne talked about her 26-year-old son, Jack's medical crisis, as he comes out publically to say he has Multiple Scleroses.
A very teary-eyed Sharon said on The Talk Monday, "I want to thank everyone for their texts and good will."
America first got to know Jack on The Osbournes, where he appeared with his parents and sister, Kelly, who went on to appear on Dancing with the Stars.
Jack's diagnosis comes just two months after the birth of his first child, a baby girl named Pearl. The disease was discovered after he lost 60% of the vision in his right eye.
M.S., which attacks the brain and nervous system can cause blindness, slurred speech, muscle weakness and a loss of coordination. And it's twice as common among women than men.
Several well-known people have M.S., most famously Anne Romney, who has long battled the disease. Talk show host Montel Williams, and Meredith Vieira's husband, Richard Cohen, also suffer from it.
Jack said he's determined not to let it get him down; he said "adapt and overcome" is his new motto.
Sharon said, "I am doing that right now and it is not helping. I am just feeling sorry for myself and that is no good. We have to think positively."
