Robin Williams' Wife Reveals He Had Parkinson's  | Robin Williams

New information has come to light regarding the tragic death of Robin Williams. His wife, Susan Schneider, released a statement where she revealed that Williams had been diagnosed with early stage Parkinson's disease. A diagnosis he was not yet ready to share with the public. Schneider also assured us that Robin died with his sobriety "intact;" as most of us know it was something he battled for a large chunk of his life. You can read Susan's full statement below. It's not surprising that Williams was married to such a graceful and eloquent woman. Her words have somehow served as a balm on the utter heartache we all feel.
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.
Thank you for sharing him with us, Susan. Our hearts and thoughts are with you and your lovely daughter in your time of loss.
