Filed under: InspirationMichael J. FoxHealth

michael j fox health parkinsons jokes joking happy inspiring

We're pretty sure there isn't a more decent human being in Hollywood than Michael J. Fox.

Everyone was heartbroken with his Parkinson's diagnosis years ago when he announced it, because it wasn't actually a very publicized disease before he got it. We all reacted like it was a death sentence and that it was the saddest thing ever.
