AceShowbiz - Danny Bonaduce's sister shares updates about the health issues that the actor is currently facing. In a Facebook post, the "Partridge Family" star's sister Celia Bonaduce revealed that the actor had developed a "mystery illness."
"Many of you have reached out to see what's going on with my brother Danny. Thank you," Clia wrote in the Sunday, May 1 post. "Along with Dairy Queen dipped cones and your messages, he is feeling the love."
Celia went on to say, "We are not being coy when we say this is a 'mystery illness.' In layman's terms, his balance sucks- super sucks." While Celia didn't detail the said illness, she assured fans that "all the great medical minds of Seattle are at work trying to solve this conundrum."
"We will keep you posted. Please remember, that while he is a public figure, he is also my well-loved brother. Type your comments accordingly," she concluded.
Danny also expressed his gratitude to fans on Twitter. "Thank you for all of the well wishes. It really means a lot to me that so many of you have reached out. Just wanted to share something my sister posted on Facebook," he said.
Earlier this week, Danny announced that he was taking a "temporary medical leave" from his radio show. "Some news to share. I'm taking a temporary medical leave from my radio show," he shared at the time. "I'll share more when I know more. I'm still working towards receiving a diagnosis. What I know is, I need time to focus on my health. I love my job and talking to you guys & I'll be back on the air soon."
Among those who sent well-wishes for the "Baker's Hawk" star was Mark Hamill. "Wishing my Corvette Summer co-star a complete & speedy recovery," so the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" actor wrote. To that, Danny responded, "I appreciate it. Thanks, man."
In a follow-up tweet, Danny seemed to be in good spirits despite his illness. "Charlie Chaplin, Willy Wonka, Danny Bonaduce. I've joined the club of cool guys with canes," he joked.
