    Nick Cannon Has a "Lupus Type" Autoimmune Disease

    Kidney failure. Two blood clots in his lung. Nick Cannon has endured some very serious health setbacks in the past couple months, which makes his recent decision to end his daily radio show understandable.

    And now, the 31-year-old husband to Mariah Carey and father to her twins Moroccan and Monroe, 10 months, reveals to Us Weekly that his medical woes all stem from an "autoimmune disease . . . like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it."

    "It's a lot of stuff," Cannon told Us, "but it's all in order now . . . I feel blessed to be alive."

    And Cannon was by his wife's side Thursday night for another happy occasion: Her first performance since giving birth to the twins back in April 2010.

    "Do you love them babies?" she asked the crowd, dedicating "Always Be My Baby" to "Roc" and "Roe." "Cause I do!"

      Freaking autoimmune diseases are horrific. My mom has an untreatable, incurable autoimmune disease and it can be terrible. It doesn't matter how much fame or fortune you have, health is everything. Thoughts are with Nick Cannon and his family.

      You know what Nick? You don't owe anyone any explanations as to the reason you were sick. It's your private matter. Just get better, buddy!

      Autoimmune diseases are terrible. I hope that he stays healthy. My aunt is studying/researching lupus and trying to find a cure for it, and from whats she has told me about these types of diseases I would not wish them on my worst enemy. Best wishes to you Nick.

      Nick, I hope you feel better. I know I did when I finally got a diagnosis. Lupus is not fun can be lived with. You have beautiful babies and a long life ahead of you.

      =( I know how rotten auto immune disease is. I feel for the guy. I hope he gets it under control and he feels better. Those kiddos need their daddy.

      My brother-in-law, Tre Boogie, works with Nick and NCredible. I've never met Nick or Mariah personally, but they seem to be really cool people, and the folks in my family that know them love them. I hope that you get well and stay well, because you, Mariah and Dem Babies surely have a future full of love and laughter ahead of you all. Godspeed, and God bless. :o)
