As you've all heard by now, Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with MS — just weeks after having a baby girl.
This is, of course, devastating news for both Jack and his family. Even WE still can't believe it.
According to a doctor, though, this isn't the end for Jack… and there is a great possibility that he'll be living a long and fulfilling life!
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!
