KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - As people across the nation mourn the death of comedian and actor Robin Williams, his widow released new information about his physical health.

Susan Schneider says he was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease, in addition to struggling with depression and anxiety.

She says her late husband wasn't ready to share his diagnosis publicly.

She also added that he was sober at the time of his death.

Thursday night, the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Kalamazoo partnered with Gryphon Place to hold a fundraiser in Williams' honor.

The theater showed "Good Will Hunting," and "The Birdcage," to raise money for Gryphon Place.

It's a non-profit group that helps people with depression and thoughts of suicide.

More than $500 was raised.
