Over the years we have talked about how “nice” (nice doesn’t really apply to Cushing’s so maybe that should be “helpful to the cause”) it would be to have a celebrity spokesperson, someone famous who has Cushing’s.
I’ve always thought that Jerry Lewis looked like he had steroid-induced Cushing’s, Liz Taylor has looked Cushie at various times. There’s new evidence that King Henry VIII might have had Cushing’s.
Today, for the first time, I have read of a person (unknown to me, but he seems to be “someone”) who has admitted that he has Cushing’s.

During the rehearsals for Besarab, I went through two cataract surgeries, lost another major chunk of chunk, and grabbed a cane to combat the last steroid-induced indignity to my body, a severe muscle and joint syndrome called Cushing’s disease.
What do you think? Any other celebrities that you’ve heard of with Cushing’s? We need a spokesperson already!
