Jack Osbourne: I Dance To Raise Awareness For MS

Posted: Updated:

Life has been different for Jack Osbourne since he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis just two weeks after he and his wife Lisa Stelly welcomed their first child back in 2012.

Jack has spoken at length about the disease, saying that one of the hardest parts of coping with MS is the uncertainty.  He also posted a message to Facebook this week that he worries about whether the disease would affect his ability to perform on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars," telling fans he truly "had no idea" what the outcome would be.

He explained to the Huffington Post that since being diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS), he's been able to maintain a very active lifestyle, but wasn't able to figure out his limitations.

"I'd participated in numerous adventure races, lasting 12-24 hours, but doing something like that is completely different than training 7 days a week, 40 hours a week (for "Dancing With The Stars").

"It's funny, every week after the show, we all line up and do a big red carpet press line, and the question that every single reporter asks me is how are you feeling -- any aches any pains? But we all know what they're really asking," he wrote. "The truth of the matter is, today I'm good. I'm feeling strong and confident in my ability to continue on."

Jack joins Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge on Good Day L.A.
