The First Lady of Metal was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2002. The news came as a surprise during the second season of the eponymously named Osbourne reality show. Sharon was terrified and so were her children and even Ozzy himself. Not wanting to raise an alarm, Sharon allowed the cameras to keep on filming her battle with cancer.
Osbourne firstly thought that cancer had been found in its early stages. This meant that after a polyp-removing surgery, she would be completely safe. However, her cancer had already found its way towards the nearest lymph node. It took invasive surgery and a lot of chemotherapy to overcome the illness. We also know that it took a lot of strength and patience and, most of all, support from her family.
