Robin Williams’ presence made a significant difference in Sharon Osbourne’s struggle with colorectal cancer. Ozzy Osbourne recommended having Williams visit and brighten Sharon’s spirits.
The family arranged for Robin to pay their mother a visit. He came to the house and jumped into bed with her without hesitation. As they watched their mother laugh with Robin, the family went from tears and uncertainty to unrestrained joy. This visit had a significant influence, and their mother was able to resume chemotherapy the next day.
Sharon had a lot of nice things to say about Williams and his thoughtfulness during her illness. He was described by her as “one of the most sincere and kind people you could ever meet.”
