Alan Alda Has Parkinson's Disease

Just announced it today, after being diagnosed with it three and a half years ago.

But, trooper and dedicated fellow that he is, he's not letting it hold him back.

I heard. Very saddening news. Hope he's as strong in this as he's been in everything else.

He's clearly not letting it hold him back, and he's going to continue in his usual pursuits of acting, writing, and science.

It's a shame Bob Hoskins let it force him into an early retirement.

At 82 now, I wish him the best. I really hope he rests and takes it easy. Just think that he doesn't have to prove anything to anyone anymore.
