“All the great medical minds of Seattle are at work trying to solve this conundrum,” said Celia Bonaduce, sister to the Partridge Family star
Danny Bonaduce is working on figuring out the cause of a new, unknown health ailment, and it truly is a “mystery,” his sister, Celia, said Sunday.
Two days earlier, the Partridge Family alum, 62, announced that he’s taking a temporary leave from his radio show The Danny Bonaduce & Sarah Morning Show on Seattle’s KZOK while seeking a diagnosis for a mystery illness. Alongside a photo of himself using a cane, Danny said that he’ll “share more when I know more.”
“I’m still working towards receiving a diagnosis,” he wrote on Twitter. “What I know is, I need time to focus on my health. I love my job and talking to you guys & I’ll be back on the air soon.”
And on Sunday, Danny reshared a post that his sister Celia had put on Facebook, where she emphasized that neither they nor his doctors know exactly what is going wrong.
“We are not being coy when we say this is a ‘mystery illness’… in layman’s terms, his balance sucks — super sucks — and all the great medical minds of Seattle are at work trying to solve this conundrum,” Celia wrote. “We will keep you posted.”
Celia also jokingly said that “unlike other families, we do not request privacy at this time,” and thanked everyone for their support.
“Many of you have reached out to see what’s going on with my brother Danny. Thank you,” she said. “Along with Dairy Queen dipped cones and your messages, he is feeling the love.”
And Danny added his own appreciation for all the love alongside Celia’s message.
“Thank you for all of the well wishes,” he said. “It really means a lot to me that so many of you have reached out.”
Danny’s wife, Amy Bonaduce, also tweeted thanks for the support.
“Over the past couple of days I’ve seen the best and worst in people online,” Amy said. “The conclusion I’ve come to is that the overwhelming majority of you are amazing. Danny and I are touched. Thank you. ❤️ 🙏”
