Jack Osbourne has said winning Dancing With The Stars would be a victory for everyone with multiple sclerosis.
The reality TV star is a contestant on the US dancing competition and has opened up to fans on his Facebook page about what it has been like to deal with MS while training, according to People magazine.
Jack, 27, who was diagnosed with MS last year, wrote: “Fortunately, over the past 10 weeks, I haven’t had any severe symptoms, other than the odd bit of tingling down my leg and the occasional bout of fatigue.
“In a weird way, I’ve found myself somewhat holding my breath, because although I feel good and confident in my ability to continue to perform, you never really do know what tomorrow is going to bring. For people who have MS, I think you’ll be able to relate to that feeling.”
He told his fans that he wasn’t just aiming to win the contest for himself, but also for everyone else living with MS.
He wrote: “Just know this, if that day does come where I do win this mirrorball, know that I didn’t just win it for me, but I won it for all of us with MS.”
