David Osmond: Talent, and MS, runs in the family
Just like Donny and Marie(his aunt and uncle), David Osmond has a smile so bright you need sunglasses to look directly at it. And, like so many others in the Osmondclan, he has a great singing voice and stage presence.
He also has multiple sclerosis, diagnosed when he was 26. His father, Alan, oldest of the performing Osmonds and producer of Donny and Marie’s TV show, also has MS.
His solo career was really taking off, but the chronic disease for which there is no cure caused him to put everything on hold. He first noticed the symptoms on Christmas Eve 2005: pain that began in his feet and eventually enveloped his body, causing paralysis that landed him in a wheelchair and compromised his breathing and his eyesight.
