Leonard Nimoy is suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  Nimoy, who rose to fame for his portrayal of Spock on Star Trek, announced Wednesday that he is suffering from the serious lung condition. Questions about Nimoy’s health arose last month after he was spotted in a wheelchair in New York.

He took to twitter to update fans on his health: I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!! LLAP [Long Live and Prosper].  COPD is said to be caused by smoking and narrows the airway of the sufferer and can cause persistent coughing and shortness of breath.  Nimoy retired from acting in 2010 following abdominal surgery, but has still made various appearances on-screen. He had a cameo on the Big Bang Theory in 2012, and most recently was in Star Trek Into Darkness which was released last year. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
