Robin Williams' Wife Informs Public About His Parkinson's Disease

As the world mourns the death of the beloved actor, Robin Williams, we have been begging for any piece of information that would help us to make sense of this entire situation. The comedic talent has been making the world laugh for decades, so of course it came as a shock that he was in such a severe state of depression that he felt his only choice was to end his own life.

His wife has recently released a statement in order to assist his mourners in coming to grips with the recent tragedy.

“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.”
