Sharon, this is NOT your fault!
We were so shocked to hear that Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis — a devastation diagnosis just weeks after his daughter was born.
It's not just tough on him, though, it's also been tough on his family.
Here's what Sharon, his mom, had to say about the horrible news:
“I keep thinking, ‘What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant?’ I feel like it’s somehow my fault. He’s my baby, my youngest… I just want to take it away from him.”
She didn't do ANYTHING wrong, and it's killing us to see a family so struck.
Even Ozzy had some things to say:
“The diagnosis got me angry, because of all the people I know, and not just because he’s my son, Jack doesn’t deserve it. If it was me, you’d think, ‘Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him,’ but Jack doesn’t deserve it. He’s such a good guy. He’s looking at it as just one hurdle in his life. Jack is everything I ever wanted to be in a man. He’s my hero.”
Jack has even opened up a little bit more about how this all happened:
“I had to do some scuba diving at night in a cold lake. When I came out, I had a headache…The next day, the vision in my right eye started to go in and out of focus. There are four different kinds [of MS] and the one I have is relapsing and the most common, but least aggressive.”
We can't express how sorry we are that this is happening, Jack.
Let's hope you can find it in you to focus on your daughter, and live life to the fullest!
