LOS ANGELES — Actor and comedian Sinbad has been recovering from a stroke he suffered two years ago, and his family updated his progress Tuesday through a website post.
Sinbad’s family says he is “fighting for every inch” and has a long road to recovery ahead of him but he is improving, and his family is asking for donations to cover therapy and medical expenses.
According to the website, there is about a 30% chance of survival from a stroke as severe as the one Sinbad experienced. He is learning how to walk and gain movement in his limbs through therapy.
Nine months after his initial stroke, on July 7, 2021, Sinbad returned home from the hospital to continue his recovery. He said on his website, “I am not done. I will not stop fighting until I can walk across the stage again.”
Sinbad’s stroke was caused by a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. A second blood clot traveled to his brain, followed by brain swelling and a bleed, according to media reports.
He was taken to West Hills Medical Center on Oct. 25, 2020, to treat the stroke. The following day, he was transferred to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where doctors performed surgery to reduce swelling in his brain. He was placed in a medically induced coma for several weeks following surgery.
He was admitted to California Rehabilitation Institute in May 2021 and began physical, occupational and speech therapy.
His family says all donations to Sinbad’s recovery will go to the Adkins Trust and will help provide for his care and recovery.
“Every outpouring of love and the memories of how he has touched all of you have not gone unheard, unseen, or unfelt,” the family posted on the website.
