Jack Osbourne: Beating MS w/t (1 x 60′) – Jack Osbourne, at the age of just 26, has just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system, which has left him technically blind in one eye. However, Jack isn’t taking this lying down and is determined to find out as much as he can about the disease, its causes, its effects, and search the world for the best treatments.
He wants to know what his future potentially holds – the best possible outcomes, and also stare the worst case scenarios in the eye. He is going to do that by getting out there and meeting the experts, and other people who have the disease, and by understanding their journeys, help make the right decisions to plot his own. And he is going to take us along for every step of that journey.
Jack Osbourne: Beating MS will be at turns funny – Jack has a great sense of humour – searing and a warm insight into what it is to be young and have MS. Through him we will get to know one of Britain’s most feared diseases, and also learn about the effect serious illness in general has on younger people.
