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.”
