Chuck Norris Gave Up His Fame And Retired From Hollywood To Take Care Of Sick Wife.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Chuck Norris was a talented actor and martial artist. Chuck’s huge body of work.
how he established himself as one of Hollywood’s most proficient and engaging martial arts actors may be unknown to today’s age.
In the early 2000s, he became the subject of much hilarity and weird humor because of his physical strength, which has plagued his reputation to this day. According to GoalCast, he vanished from Hollywood and the public eye to care for his ailing wife, Gena O’Kelly.
Chuck O’Kelly and Chuck Norris first met in 1997, when Chuck played a supporting role in a television series starring Gena. They married about 22 years ago, on November 28, 1998, and welcomed twins on August 30, 2001.
Gena’s problems began in 2013, when she decided to get an MRI scan to investigate her rheumatoid arthritis. She said that a “contrast agent” was put into her soon before her scan. This went on for two more scans, and her body began to show signs of acute weakness, including “intense burning.”
Gena recalls calling up her husband in the middle of the night to tell him that she was suffering from “something really wrong.” They’d rush her to the hospital for emergency treatment, but the doctors would deny any wrongdoing and tell her she was perfectly healthy.
According to CBS SF Bay Area, they didn’t see the need in placing her on an IV drip or prescription pain medication, thus the scorching simply spread throughout her body.
Gena described “serious brain damage,” articulation and memory problems, muscular atrophy, and being hypermetabolic to the point where her entire body was simply “tremoring” in addition to the constant burning. Norris didn’t find successful, individualized treatment for her illness until she went to Reno, Nevada, to find an integrative specialist.
She talked to Hello Magazine about it “I was in bed for five months on an IV and required round-the-clock nursing care. Chuck slept on the couch next to me and never got up. I hoped to live long enough to raise my children.”
The pair claimed that the drug ‘gadolinium’ poisoned O’Kelly’s body and caused his death. The chemical is used in around 33% of all MRI scans worldwide, yet the UPFDA feels it is perfectly safe. The US Air Force veteran gave up a lucrative Hollywood career to devote his time to fighting his wife’s cancer.
According to GoalCast, he sued 11 Big Pharma corporations for making and selling the chemical that he says caused his wife’s illness.
He couldn’t stand seeing Gena suffer, so he dedicated his life to fixing what he considers to be a major defect in the healthcare system. It’s great to witness a man who’s created a reputation for being harsh, unpleasant, and fairly masculine show his sensitive, caring side.
Chuck, who is 80 years old, is a loving spouse, father, and grandfather. His wife and he live on a ranch outside of Navasota, Texas, where they bottle water and donate a portion of the revenues to environmental causes and Kickstart Kids.
