Parkinson’s disease

In January of this year, Cellan Jones was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. He claimed that his first symptom, dragging feet, became apparent during a vacation with Diane in 2018. He went home and saw his doctor, who referred him to a neurologist. Someone wrote to the BBC around the same time, saying they had seen my quivering hand in one of my broadcasts and recommended me to get it checked, Rory said. He had his own suspicions at the time, so the diagnosis “wasn’t a complete surprise.” Parkinson’s illness has no known cure. Rory, on the other hand, was unconcerned with the news, despite having previously been diagnosed with something significantly more serious. He was diagnosed with choroidal melanoma, a rare type of cancer forming near the retina behind his eye, in 2005.

He was terrified when he was informed that he had the disease though it didn’t appear to be life-threatening right away like cancer could. In order to control the symptoms, Cellan-Jones has a program to follow: morning exercises – twisting my hand from side to side, holding it out in front, moving his arm up and down according to his consultant.
