MS is a disease that affects one's central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. It can also take its toll on muscle control, balance, vision and thinking.

"I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing," Jack, who only two weeks ago welcomed daughter Pearl Clementine with fiancee Lisa Stelly, told the mag.
