Sharon goes on to express the fierce determination her and her family have to get Ozzy back "out there" and performing.

"We're not going to stop until Ozzy is back out there, on that stage, where he belongs," adding,

"It was what he was born to do."

That's love, right there. Sharon explains that Ozzy's on both nerve medication and Parkinson's medication. They're planning a trip to Switzerland, to see a specialist.

"We've kind of reached a point here in this country where we can't go any further because we've got all the answers we can get here," she notes. "So in April – we're going to a professional in Switzerland. And he deals with – getting your immune system at its peak."

You can find Ozzy on Parkinsons.org, making the list of notable people with this disease, right alongside Alan Alda, Muhammad Ali, George H.W. Bush, and many more. Not only are there facts about the disease listed, but lots of information on what it's like living with the disease.

Having a Parkinson's diagnosis can cause grim feelings, but learning more and getting familiar with the attribute can be a good thing.

Ozzy has been battling for many months and will have many more months of battles ahead. The outpouring of love from fans is surely a help. His courage to speak out is both courageous and humanizing.
