Having a brush with death, these 5 celebrities all dealt with serious health issues and have spoken on what happened to them and how they moved passed it. Some are lucky to be alive after what they went through, while others spoke about their condition in order to raise awareness and help others. Here is what they have to say about their own health scares.
Cheryl was struck down with malaria after a trip to Africa which almost killed her: “I just ate everything. The malaria also ate away at my muscles, but let’s not get grim – it opened my eyes to health and things I hadn’t focused on before. I was yellow because of my kidneys – it was a bit like jaundice. It was hard to find a matching foundation, let me tell you! I had to take good care of myself and I was told to stop exercising and to gain weight to get well.”
Gwyneth was suffering from several issues: “I was a mess. I was vitamin-D deficient, I had anaemia, I had thyroid issues, my liver was congested, I had hormonal imbalances and a benign tumour on my ovary that had to be removed – I mean, it was crazy. I knew it was time for change.”
Julianne suffered from a ruptured cyst on her ovary caused by endometriosis and although her management asked her to keep it quiet, she spoke about the condition: “Last week my management and the other people around me were trying to think of something else I could say that was wrong with me, but I was like, dont worry. I want to be a good role model. I want to be honest. Maybe some girl out there wont wait too long like I did. “Im just glad Im taking care of it now because I want to have babies some day.”
