Nick Cannon Reveals How Lupus Changed His Life
by Chris Burton
“..It was just like ‘If I do get a chance to do it again, I’m going to make sure all of the things that matter, I focus on. And the things that don’t matter, I let ’em fall by the wayside,'” Cannon told Rolling Out. “And because I still deal with the health condition to this day, it just makes me hungry and makes me grind harder, because we’re not promised tomorrow.”
The entertainer spoke about how other people could learn from his situation.
“I’m doing everything I can do to keep myself healthy, but at the same time, in the back of mind I [know] the clock is ticking. I need to leave my mark,” Cannon told Rolling Out. “That’s what everybody should do. You’ve got to leave this place better than it was when you got here.”
“I feel like I can’t waste one day. That’s why when people say ‘your work ethic is crazy,’ I’m like ‘The clock is ticking.’ I gotta leave something.”
