Alan Alda broke the news that he’s been living with Parkinson’s disease, but wants people to know that he’s doing great and there’s no need to be sad.
The “M*A*S*H” star just appeared on “CBS This Morning” and said he was diagnosed with the disease three and a half years ago. He says since then, he has lived a full life.
Alda admits he decided to reveal the news himself to hinder anyone from finding out and doing a sad story, and says after some recent interviews for his new podcast he noticed his thumb twitching.
The 82-year-old actor says he’s been extremely active and appears to be in great spirits while dealing with his health.
