Mark first got diagnosed with PSP (Progressive Supra Nuclear Palsy) in 2015, although we now believe that he could have been exhibiting symptoms of the disease in 2014 or earlier. This is a rare disease (1-3 people in 100,000 get diagnosed with this disease and may people are either misdiagnosed or diagnosed late in the disease process).
