Sharon Osbourne’s son Jack to fly to Germany for banned stem cell treatment for his MS!
Fans of former – and hopefully soon to be returning – X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne will know that her son Jack was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis last year, and today it’s been revealed that Jack is to fly to Germany to have experimental stem cell therapy.
The treatment, which is currently banned in the States, involves cloning the sufferer’s own stem cells.
Explaining the process, and his decision to undergo the treatment, dad of one Jack said, “There are odd restrictions here in America because everybody still thinks it’s, like, what it isn’t…
“So I’m going to Germany. They clone stem cells from your own blood then inject them back into you.
And of how he is at the moment, Jack told the Mirror, “I’m good. That’s the thing about MS – one minute you’re good, one minute you’re not.
“I’m hanging on in there, healthy and doing what I got to do.”
The paper adds, “Jack said he and wife Lisa are getting plenty of help with babysitting from his parents, who are relishing their role as grandparents.”
He said, “Now [Pearl] is nine months and not so delicate they can play more and have more fun with her.
“Ozzy is pretty hands-on. But when she starts crying he hands her off.”
Jack added to Access Hollywood that his dad Ozzy has “a soulmate” in Pearl.
He said, “She pretty much understands him. They’ve had some heart-to-hearts.”
