News of Jack Osbourne's health battle broke over the weekend and many fans are still coming to terms with the revelation.
The 26-year-old's rocker dad Ozzy and his sister Kelly have already spoken out to express their shock and his reality star mum Sharon was still struggling to hold it together as she co-hosted her US chat show The Talk on Monday.
With puffy eyes and tears streaming down her face she said: "Jack will actually be here on Wednesday to talk about his diagnosis. But he is great, he is doing really, really good. Thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing for Jack because I really believe that... prayer really helps."
And although Sharon failed to put on a strong front, the 59-year-old has vowed to remain positive throughout the ordeal.
She added: "What I'm doing right now is not helping because I'm just feeling sorry for myself and that is no good and so we need to think positively and get on with this show that we love."
