Sinbad still learning to walk 2 years after stroke


Comedian Sinbad is still learning to walk two years after suffering a stroke, his family has revealed.

The 66-year-old star’s loved ones released a lengthy statement on Monday, saying he has a long way to go before making a full recovery from the medical emergency.

Sinbad’s family says he’s still “fighting for every inch” as his limbs — that were once said to be “dead” — are resuming mobility, which is particularly important as he begins walking again. 

Sinbad experienced an ischemic stroke as a result of a blood clot that traveled from his heart to his brain. He remained in the hospital for nine months and was released in July 2021. 

“Survival odds from this type of event are approximately 30 percent,” his family wrote. “Sinbad has already beaten the odds and has made significant progress beyond what anyone expected, but there are still miles to go.”

The medical costs have taken a toll on Sinbad’s family, who have set up a website for anyone who feels inclined to make a donation. 

Though Sinbad’s family is currently in need of money, they are “eternally grateful” for the support they’ve received from fans up until this point.

“The family believes, without exception, Sinbad is here because of the multitude of prayers from all who know and love him,” they explained. 

“Every outpouring of love and the memories of how he has touched all of you have not gone unheard, unseen, or unfelt. Thank you. You have lifted his spirits along the way and inspired the entire family.”
