The best way to fight disease and illnesses is to be actually experiencing them and trying to find ways to combat them. Such was the motivation that popular celebrity actor Michael J. Fox that brought him to put up this foundation in May, 2000. Fox was diagnosed in 1998 as having a young-onset Parkinson�s disease. Instead of looking for a cure on his own, he turned to making it a foundation to be able to help and make research on how to cure or fight the dreaded disease that has accumulated over $90,000.00 to date.
While there has still been no clear cure for Parkinson�s, Fox still believes that there is hope and that people suffering from it will eventually triumph against it. Donations are continuously racking in and such funds are the basis for making the aggressive research of the foundation advanced and possible to finally discover proper therapies and cures for Parkinson�s disease.
