Believe it or not, Michael J. Fox has credited Parkinson’s for making him, “a better husband, father, and overall human being.”
After being diagnosed with the debilitating disease at 29, the Back to the Future star hit rock bottom, isolating himself from his wife and son, but was able to turn his life around. He says:
“Life delivered me a catastrophe, but I found a richness of soul. I owe it to Parkinson’s, no doubt about that.”
If everyone else was as positive as Michael J. Fox our world might be a better place, but we'll settle for taking comfort in knowing the iconic actor has found comfort in his life.
