    Two years after a devastating stroke, actor and comedian Sinbad is learning to walk again—and turning to fans for help paying the bills. The 66-year-old performer’s family set up a trust and a website to keep the public updated on his condition. It includes photos of him on a ventilator in 2020 and more recently taking a step with the help of a walker and a therapist. Sinbad, whose real name is David Adkins, had back-to-back strokes in September 2020, two brain surgeries, and then a brain bleed that left him in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator. “It would be weeks before he would open his eyes, speak, or show signs of basic mobility. It wasn’t long before we realized he couldn’t move his left side or simply hold his head up,” the website says. He spent months in acute-care facilities—unable to move the left side of his body—before starting intensive therapy at the California Rehabilitation Institute, where he started to recover. “On July 7, 2021, nearly nine months after the initial stroke, Sinbad finally came home....

    Jacob Blake, the black man whose shooting by Kenosha police last year set off the riots during which Kyle Rittenhouse fatally shot two men and wounded a third, is rehabilitating his injuries in Chicago. Blake, 30, is learning to walk again, according to his uncle, Justin Blake, who has been a vocal protester outside the courthouse in Kenosha where Rittenhouse is due to learn his fate. ‘He has bad days, there’s no doubt, but he’s so grateful to be alive,’ Justin Blake, a 52-year-old Chicago resident, told The New York Times. Justin Blake said that his nephew has not been following the Rittenhouse trial. Instead, he has focused on his new t-shirt printing business. ‘He needs to be focusing on himself, focusing on his children and his new normal,’ Justin Blake said of his nephew. A GoFundMe campaign started by Jacob Blake’s mother, Julia Jackson, has raised more than $2.3million.

    Abby Lee Miller is moving forward on her road to recovery. The 55-year-old former "Dance Moms" star underwent another back surgery recently to help her regain mobility and reduce some of her pain. Over the past two years, Miller was diagnosed with Burkitt’s lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and had to have lifesaving spinal surgery which caused her to become wheelchair-bound.  “I want to have more independence. I want to live my life. I want to be able to jump in the shower anytime I want, anytime I feel like it. That’s a huge goal,” she told Extra. “People see me sitting in the chair, and I’m in makeup and hair and, ‘Oh, she’s doing great.’ They don’t really see what goes on behind closed doors. It’s rough. Very rough.” Dr. Hooman Melamed, who performed the second seven-hour spine surgery, told Extra that Miller's history of chemo treatments made the operation risky.
