Nick Cannon Explains His Rare Form of Lupus on GMA
Robin Roberts sat down with Nick Cannon this morning to discuss his recent health problems on Good Morning America. Nick explained that he’s been diagnosed with a rare form of lupus that specifically attacks his kidneys. That is a serious and scary diagnosis. However, Nick seems to be approaching the news with optimism and dedication.
“I have been ordered to sleep at least six hours a night. They say rest is probably the best medicine. I’m dealing with it. Of course I’m not used to the medicines, but I feel like I’m starting to figure out a lot of holistic ways, meditation and stuff to get through it.”
“I have to be around for my children. They’re my motivation for the whole thing.”
I can only imagine how it must feel to have all of these health scares when you have two very young children at home. I applaud him for taking such a positive attitude towards everything. Hopefully he does slow down and keep his symptoms in check like he needs to. It seems wife Mariah Carey is more than happy to help:
“[Mariah] made me an egg-white sandwich before I left the house this morning. She takes care of me, makes sure I’m eating what I’m supposed to be.”
I would have never guessed it, but it seems that these two make quite the team. I’m glad they’re working everything out together.
