Queen Latifah on mom’s battle with Scleroderma

Queen Latifah has recently opened up about a very hard subject to talk about, her mother’s battle with Scleroderma, and what it takes to care for her these days.

Taking on the full time job of dealing with an ailing parent Queen Latifah reveals she has taken on the personal commitment of her mother Rita Owen’s now round the clock medical needs.

Latifah’s mother Rita, 64 was diagnosed in 213 with Sclerderma, which is an incurable autoimmune disease that attacks the lungs causing scar tissue (pulmonary fibrosis) to build up in the organs.

Not only is Rita battling sclerderma she also has pulmonary hypertension (blood pressure in the lungs), which impacts her ability to breathe.

Latifah considered declining talk show offer

Queen Latifah revealed that after her mother was diagnosed she almost decided against doing her popular daytime talk show stating,

“I wasn’t going to do the show unless she came here. I knew she was dealing with her health issues sometimes and I would not be able to get to her as easily.”

Even with her very busy schedule Queen Latifah, 44 claims that she absolutely can not imagine anyone else taking care of her mother other than herself.

What a wonderful mother and daughter bond, props to Queen Latifah.
