Robin Williams would have turned 71 today and he had a wonderful career that touched the hearts of millions around the world. He was also a husband who tried his hardest to do the right thing by his wife even as he battled his mental struggles along with deadly Lewy body disease.

However, that wasn't the case and Schneider went through something extremely heartbreaking. She has opened up about her experience in order to raise awareness and the suffering that Lewy Body Disease causes.
