Pop icon Cher has Epstein-Barr virus, which she had in the 1980s. This left her bedridden for months, and it caused depression for her as well. This virus also affects her kidneys and heart, and will cause chronic fatigue for the rest of her life. While this clearly does take a toll on Cher, she is still alive and well, performing where she can and even still putting out new music. It seems like the saying, “The show must go on,” rings valid with this pop sensation.
