Cassidy, whose mother and grandfather both suffered from the disease, says the diagnosis was not totally unexpected. “I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming,” Cassidy revealed.

With the decision to stop touring behind him, the singer is looking forward to what’s next. “I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions,” he says. “I want to love. I want to enjoy life.”

Cassidy took to Twitter earlier today to thank fans for the outpouring of support.
