Following my post about Muhammad Ali, I wanted to follow it up with Michael J Fox because somehow, i think Parkinson's Disease likes to invade the rich and famous.

I personally knew Michael J Fox from Back to the future trilogy. I just loved every minute of it and i wouldnt mind watching the 3 movies again if i come across the opportunity. For those who dont know Micheal J Fox, ill be glad to give you a little glimpse about him.

He is a canadian/american film and television actor who is most famous for his roles as Marty McFly from the Back To The Future Trilogy (1985-1990); Alex Keaton from Family Ties (1982-1989), for which he won three Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award ; and Mike Flaherty from Spin CIty (1996-2000), for which he won an Emmy, three Golden Globes, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991, and disclosed his condition to the public in 1998. As the symptoms of his disease worsened, he retired from full-time acting in 2000.

Watch Michael J Fox with his support to Stem Cell Research and while displaying the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. He just proves to everyone that his disease is not a hindrance to anything. Anything at all!

What's my take about Michael's illness? I really think this guy is brave and determined. Why? He never let Parkinson's Disease destroy his career. He starred in numerous films and series after his diagnosis in 1991 and earned bigtime awards and recognitions. He even made a book about his experiences with Parkinson's entitled The Lucky Man and since it was released, it was given international recognition. He also founded the Michael J Fox Foundation which is aimed at advancing stem cell research which scientists believe would eliminate Parkinson's Disease. Visit the website here.
