South African Celebrities Who Are/were Fighting Deadliest Chronic Illnesses
Chronic diseases are defined broadly as conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are the leading causes of death and disability around the world.
Celebrities enjoy a life that most people can only dream of thanks to the most opulent brands accessible, but they too suffer from health issues that can be expensive to treat.
