Just because you’re rich and famous doesn’t mean you’re immune to disease. Some stars are plagued with mental or physical afflictions that affect their quality of life and have to be managed through medical care or lifestyle moderation. Here are several celebrities who live with various chronic illness and health conditions, but they still manage to achieve remarkable success.
1. Jack Osborne
Sharon and Ozzy’s son Jack was just 26 when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease which attacks the nerves. He found out three weeks after his first child was born. He decided to speak up about his condition, and produced a video called “You Don’t Know Jack About MS” to help others learn about the disease. He’s on a rigorous treatment regimen that keeps his symptoms mostly under control, for now.
