The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
This is, of course, devastating news for both Jack and his family. Even WE still can't believe it.
Here's what the source said:
"This is not a death sentence at all, he can still live a full life. There's never a good time to be diagnosed with MS but now is a very hopeful time because of recent huge medical developments. Disease-modifying therapy treatment that will ease the symptoms and diminish the attack by the immune system on the nerves. The first one was introduced in 1993, we now have 8 FDA drugs, and we're now on the edge of the next wave being approved."
That IS very hopeful!
Couple all that science with the fact that Jack is a strong dude, and you've got the perfect storm of defense against this thing!
We're sending all our positive energy, Jack!
