Sharon elaborated a little more on Parkin’s II, adding it does affect Ozzy’s body but is not a death sentence.
“It’s Parkin’s II, which a form of Parkinson’s. There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does effect certain nerves in your body. It’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
Ozzy said he is currently on medication for Parkin’s II and will be traveling to Switzerland for further treatment. This is in addition to his injuries suffered in 2019 when he fell and aggravated old injuries from his old ATV injuries, suffered on December 8th, 2003, which were given as the reason for the post-ponement of his final world tour in 2019.
