Robin Williams Had Parkinson's Disease, Wife Says..
Wife urges people to seek helpFull story at TheWrap
STATEMENT: “Robin spent so much of his life helping others. Whether he was entertaining millions on stage, film or television, our troops on the frontlines, or comforting a sick child — Robin wanted us to laugh and to feel less afraid.
Since his passing, all of us who loved Robin have found some solace in the tremendous outpouring of affection and admiration for him from the millions of people whose lives he touched. His greatest legacy, besides his three children, is the joy and happiness he offered to others, particularly to those fighting personal battles.
Robin's sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson's Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly.
It is our hope in the wake of Robin's tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid.”
Rock Falls/Sterling native Frank Harts on ROBIN WILLIAMS- "Well as a fellow Illinoisan, Juilliard man, and human being I will say Robin brought the world joy for decades. When I watched him work, not only was I deeply inspired as an artist. I was transported to a realm where, even if just for a few hours, race, religion, politics and all of the troubles of the world ceased to be a concern. His talents were from another realm, but a clearer reflection of earth's humanity has rarely ever been clearer than it was through his talents"
