You have a source for your rumor?

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

It was in some article that is out to promote her book. I think the diagnosis is recent, very recent. I don't remember which article, it maybe in the people or some health magazine. But I have read in the last 2 days or so.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

Depending on how severe the case is, a person can still enjoy alcohol in moderation. There are different levels to the disease where ranging from people with limited movement aility to those on the lighter end of the spectrum who can live a relatively active lifestyle with the aid of medication. But thankfully, it's not a death sentence where every individual has to cut out everything.

sad Sad news. The latest news from her book has me feeling a little resentful, but I do feel bad for her that she was diagnosed with this disease. Wouldn't wish this on anyone. Hope it's not a severe case.

It was in the second to last paragraph of the People magazine article online, so if you read it and it's still there, it appears your question has been answered already.

I wish her the best on her health journey. I am intimately familiar with this disease and send out prayers and well wishes for her as she transitions into making some adjustments in lifestyle. The good news is that it's not a fatal condition, and for those who fall on the lighter side of the MS spectrum, they can continue to live highly active, thriving lives, they'll just have to learn how to pace themselves and have a healthy work-life balance with as little stress as possible to avoid onset of fatigue episodes (which are a bitch). For those that fall into that catagory, having that healthy balance coupled with proper medication (usually Copaxone by injection), and a good neurologist on deck are key to unlocking the most potential you can get out of life while you traverse the illness. I know what it's like to care for a loved one with this illness, so I wish her calmness, patience, strength and vitality and encourage her or anyone else to not be fearful when they are faced with this. Again, it's not a death sentence, but life will change in some ways.

.

.

I am happy to say that in my family we took part in a medical study and test about 3 years ago that will hopefully make a new treatment available to the public in a few years. In the case of my loved one, the effects were outstanding. But, these things take time of course, when it comes to testing and approving new medicines in the pharmaceutical industry. In the meantime, there are solid, longstanding medicines available to help for now, and more good news is that the injectibles that patients used to have to take daily have now been improved upon so that they only have to have shots 3 times a week. There are definite life changes about to take place for Mayte to be sure, but, as long as she's not in the realm of more severe diagnosis, she really will be fine. There will be some times when her body feels like it will be betraying her terribly, but those episodes will eventually pass. Low stress and a good support system of loved ones and medical team are crucial and will make the physical valleys easier to endure (and eventually make your way out of).

The mag article says it was caught early.

Its multiple sclerosis. That is what MS stands for. Talk show host Montell Williams has this too.

I read in People she has early stages. I hope it doesn't get worse.

Richard Pryor also had MS. He and Annette Funicello were among some of the first entertainers I remember going public with the disease, and acting as Ambassadors on behalf of the MS Society. This from the National MS Society website:

Richard Pryor

Statement regarding the passing of Richard Pryor from the National MS Society, December 10, 2005

On behalf of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, we want to express our sincere condolences to the Pryor family. We are all saddened by this loss as Mr. Pryor will be remembered as a ground-breaking comedian and world-class talent. "Mr. Pryor struggled with the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis for many years and he will be remembered for his courage and dignity," said Joyce Nelson, President and CEO of the National MS Society. "The Society was honored to work directly with Richard Pryor and is pleased to currently have his daughter Rain as an ambassador for the MS cause."

Editors note: For more information about multiple sclerosis and to speak with experts about the disease, contact Arney Rosenblat at 212-476-0436 or Becca Kornfeld at 212-476-0484.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Every hour in the United States, someone new receives that frightening diagnosis: multiple sclerosis. MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are giving hope to those affected by the disease. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men contracting the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.5 million worldwide. Read more about MS

About The National MS Society
The mission of the National MS Society is to end the devastating effects of MS. Through its home office and 50-state network of chapters, the Society funds more MS research, offers more services to people with MS, provides more professional education, and advances more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. This is why we're here.

Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve quality of life for many people with multiple sclerosis. Talk to your health care professional and contact the National MS Society atmain.nationalmssociety.org or 1-800-FIGHT-MS to learn about ways to help manage multiple sclerosis and about current research that may one day reveal a cure.

Lola Falana was the first celeb that I'd heard of who had it. Auntie Ottie is probably the only one who knows who she is though.
