#1 Back To The Future
All of us have this image imprinted on our brains. The loveable Marty McFly hovering over water on his futuristic skate, in the famous movie 'Back to the Future'.
#2 The Battle
Sadly, Michael J. Fox has been battling Parkinson's disease since the 90's. He's given it a great fight, but it's getting really compicated now. One of his feet has become unresponsive, and apparently within the next five years he will become wheelchair bound.
The very young actor (he's only 54 years old) is becoming more and more speech impaired. He's needing increasing assistance. On a recent night out with his wife, the usually reclusive actor had an entourage of helpers around him.
About that night in February, a friend said: “It was heartbreaking. Michael’s bravery knows no bounds. But as the disease takes its toll on his body, even he is beginning to see that his battle is a losing one.”
#5 Michael Fox Foundation
Then he adds: “Michael sees every day as a gift, as well as an opportunity to help other sufferers. His Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research has done so much and has raised millions of dollars, but a cure remains well out of reach."
We wish you the best, Michael!
