Nick Cannon Creates Documentary About Health Struggles
Nick Cannon has done a few things over the years to surprise us. For example, he started dating the much older, Mariah Carey. He showed ambition by becoming the host of multiple television and radio shows. He made us like Drumline… He also, as a very young man, developed some serious health issues and the onset was so sudden that it surely scared himself and his family (comments on articles across the web show that his fans were pretty scared too!).
The 31-year-old, who was ultimately diagnosed with lupus, has created a new online documentary series called the Ncredible Health Hustle which begins with the his first day in the hospital. Cannon narrates: "A few days ago, I was with my family in the snow, playing, having a good time. All of a sudden, I started swelling up, having shortness of breath, excruciating pain in my right side. I wake up in the hospital, a bunch of doctors telling me I've got kidney failure."
The series, which he is publishing on his website, documents Cannon’s progress as he changes his diet and exercise in an attempt to regain his health. In a message to his fans, Cannon wrote: "I thank all of you for the continuous messages, and want you to know it inspires me to keep pushing. Hoping this series serves as inspiration for anyone dealing with kidney disease, lupus or ANY ILLNESS to keep pushing as well."
There is so much for him left to do as a person, artist, husband and father so, hopefully, this series will document him as he improves and his health stabilizes.
