Robin had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease not long before his death but had also been struggling silently with the effects of Lewy body dementia, even though it was undiagnosed by doctors. Robin’s Wish not only explores the devastating effects this disease wreaked on his life toward the end but also highlights the need for more research and better diagnosis of this horrendous disease. While at the same time, celebrating the life of a comic genius and righting the wrongs of a press hungry for speculation and dangerous misinformation.
