Actor Kevin Sorbo Reveals His Secret Battle with Stroke in New Issue of Neurology Now

September 30, 2011


Actor Kevin Sorbo is best known for his television portrayal of Hercules, a muscle-bound hero who battles the forces of evil. But almost no one knew he was also waging a secret battle — on and off the set — after an aneurysm and a series of strokes left him partially blind and with nearly debilitating dizziness, nausea and weakness when he was only 38 years old.

For the first time, Sorbo is sharing his story and recovery in the latest issue of Neurology Now®, the American Academy of Neurology's award-winning magazine for neurology patients and caregivers as well as in his new book, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life (October 2011, Da Capo Press).
