Agreed on being bummed -- it's what killed my father, and it always saddens me to hear of a person being diagnosed, as I know what they're in for. My father was about 10 years older than Kirk is now when diagnosed, then declined for the next decade. I haven't paid too much attention into how the treatment for the disease has evolved. Then, in the 1990s, they focused on the early-onset patients for anything experimental. I doubt Kirk is considered early onset at almost 58, but he has access to great medical resources, and hopefully they can help keep his symptoms minimal.
