13 Celebrities Who Had Major Health Scares
Celebrities are lucky in many ways because they get lots of perks that the average person doesn’t; however, when it comes to health, they don’t get any special privileges. Instead, they get the same viruses and diseases that we do. The only possible benefit would be that they have access to the best of the best in terms of treatment and medicine. The following 13 celebrities experience some pretty crazy health scares, but thanks to modern medicine, they were able to live to tell the tale:
13. NeNe Leakes
Back in 2014, NeNe Leakes revealed that she had been hospitalized when doctors found blood clots in her lungs. “Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short of breath,” she wrote on her website shortly after the incident. “I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung.” Leakes is doing well though, but she still needs to take medication and will probably have to for the rest of her life.
12. Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman has suffered skin cancer six times in the past, having last had cancer cells removed from his nose in 2017. Before that he had cancer cells removed from his nose in 2013. “It’s a basal cell carcinoma,” he said during an appearance on Live with Kelly. “It’s a basal cell carcinoma. Being an Aussie with English parents, growing up in Australia, it’s sort of the new normal for me.” His only word of advice for avoiding this is to use sunscreen!
