Yesterday the world lost another soul. A son lost his Mother. Hollywood lost an icon. Patty Duke was an Oscar winner for her portrayal of Helen Keller but she had her own battle to fight. A battle her son documents in an online tribute to his famous Mother.
You see, Academy Award winner Patty Duke also suffered from Bi-Polar Disorder. She suffered from a Mental Health issue.
Her mental health issues became her legacy long after Hollywood stopped ringing her phone up. Her son took up the cause as well and as many around the world are trying to do, end the stigma of mental health.
In fact, the same day as Boom 101.9’s Radiothon, April 7, Sean will be discussing Mental Health issues at a college campus in Michigan.
As the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation and Corus Entertainment prepares for the 10th annual Corus Caring Hearts Radiothon on April 7, remember Addiction and Mental health issues affect not only an individual and their family but it affects an entire community. That’s why we ask you to give generously to this initiative.
