Jenny McCarthy says the death of John Travolta's teenage son bought back
painful memories.
The star was left shaken by the news of 16-year-old Jett Travolta's passing
- because her own six-year-old son almost died from a seizure last year.
She said: "When I first heard the news about Jett, I slowly kind of sat
down. Last year, Evan had another seizure which lasted seven hours - we had
to put him in a coma for four days so he wouldn't go into cardiac arrest.
"So looking at Jett, I cried out of fear for my own son, and for, I can't
even tell you how many children, with autism."
Jett's death on January 2 was caused by a seizure. He had been diagnosed
with the rare illness Kawasaki Syndrome, but other reports claimed he
suffered from autism.
Jenny - who campaigns for autism sufferers - says that if Jett did have
autism, she understands why Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston, who are
both Scientologists, would keep it private.
The 36-year-old actress added: "They should have the right to keep whatever
they want to themselves, and share what they want with the world.
"My heart goes out to them. I have such compassion and understanding for
what they've gone through."
