Nick Cannon Writes From His Hospital Bed: I gotta stop running my body to the ground.

As some of you know, Nick has lupus nephritis, an autoimmune condition that affects the kidneys. Nick, who shares twins with his ex wife Mariah Carey, has spoken publicly about how he copes with the disease.

In a 2012 interview with the Huffington Post, he stated:

I just want to get out there and continue to educate and be that pillar in the community to say, ‘hey, well he’s doing it and he’s strong when he does it.’ So I feel like it’s given me new purpose on this Earth, so I embrace it wholeheartedly.”

Just last week, Nick seemed to be in great spirits, sharing an adorable moment with his kids.
