Jack: “I'm doing really well right now”
Jack Osbourne insists he is “feeling good” regarding his multiple sclerosis (MS) condition as he has been following treatment steadily.
The television personality was diagnosed with MS back in 2012, a disease which impairs the nervous system by concentrating on the brain’s nerve cells.
He explained to People magazine: “I’m doing really well right now, which is awesome, always good news. That’s all I can really ask for at the moment. I’m feeling good, I’m taking care of myself, I’m sticking to my treatment plan, so things are good.”
And the 30-year-old star – who has two young daughters with wife Lisa Stelly – says the birth of Pearl helped him cope with the debilitating condition.
“It’s weird, because I got diagnosed with MS three weeks before my oldest daughter was born. So there was a huge lifestyle change anyway and then you add to it. [My daughter] shifted the focus, which I think is good.”
Since learning about MS, Jack – who stars in the travel show Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour along with his rocker father – has opened a website called You Don’t Know Jack About MS in hopes of educating people about the disease.
He explained: “The whole point of ‘You Don’t Know Jack About MS‘ was to create a destination website for people to go and just learn the broad strokes about MS. What is it, how does it affect people, and cut through a lot of the noise that the internet tends to be full of. Here’s the facts, it’s easy to digest.
But I don’t want the focus to be on me. I know it’s called that, and I’m hosting it, but I want the focus to be about the disease and kind of giving people a little bit of hope, and a better understanding about what it is.”
