Robin Williams (1951-2014) was an American actor and comedian who appeared in numerous films. He recently committed suicide. His wife, Susan Schneider, has made a statement that, at the time of his death, Robin Williams was in the early stages of Parkinson's Disease.

His wife, Susan Schneider wrote : "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."
