Staying in shape and being in good health are two of the most things to living a long life. Additionally, it helps to have a positive attitude, especially when faced with a challenging circumstance. For famous comedian Sinbad, looking toward the future and a strong willpower was the key to overcoming his health crisis. Back in October 2020, Sinbad suffered from an Ischemic Stroke.
