Jack Osbourne Discusses MS

Katie's Take

Jack Osbourne sat with Katie to discuss “Dancing with the Stars” and his new documentary titled “You Don’t Know Jack About MS” which chronicles his battle with the disease. However, MS did not stop him from getting third place with his partner Cheryl Burke.

“I know you said “Dancing with The Stars” changed your life,” Katie said.
“I learned to dance,” Jack said. “I didn’t know how to do that before, so it definitely changed something.”

“Did your MS present any particular challenges? “ Katie asked.

“Nothing that was too unmanageable,” he said, “[but] everyday can bring on something new.”

What are some of the symptoms Jack has experienced so far?

He explained that he sometimes will feel shooting pains and aches in his legs, as well as numbness, but the disease varies from person to person.

“In the last 10 years there have been leaps and bounds,” Jack said, “there are treatments out there now that help maintain a high quality of life.

In fact, there have been many medical advances in the past ten years, that Jack is confident that he will see
MS become obsolete in the near future.
