The 26 year adrenalin junkie, who was diagnosed with the disease around a month ago but only made his condition public earlier on this week, revealed how he was ‘distraught’ that show bosses felt he would not be up to completing some of the daring tasks set out within the show.
Jack was appearing on US show The Talk when he openly discussed, for the first time, his condition, Jack said ““I had booked a job, right when I got diagnosed, and the company didn’t think I could actually perform the job. Out of everything, that’s what has really ticked me off the most because it’s like, ‘Don’t tell me what I can and cannot do’. At no point did they call me. It was all through agents and lawyers — I was offended by it.” The new Dad also revealed that he is doing fine and is learning to cope with the unpredictability of the disease.
Good luck Jack!
