MASH Star Alan Alda Recently Diagnosed With Parkinson’s

 

Sad to hear this news.  He told reporters, “I’ve had a full life since then. I’ve acted, I’ve given talks, I help at the Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook. I started this new podcast. I noticed that—I had been on television a lot in the last couple of weeks talking about the new podcast—and I could see my thumb twitch in some shots and I thought, it’s probably only a matter of time before somebody does a story about this from a sad point of view, but that’s not where I am.”

 

The 82-year-old says he’s not angry and considers it a challenge.  Alda says revealing his diagnosis might be helpful to others with Parkinson’s that there are things they can do.
