  1. Robin Williams Was Battling Parkinson’s

    He was facing another demon. The comedy genius and man of a thousand voices was grappling with depression, anxiety and the early stages of Parkinson’s disease when he committed suicide, his widow revealed yesterday. Williams’ sobriety was “intact,” said wife Susan Schneider in a statement, but he was “not yet ready” to reveal his illness publicly. Schneider said she hoped that the tragedy would encourage others to “seek the care and support they need” to fight their personal battles and “feel less afraid.”
