Michael J. Fox earned celebrity status at a young age after his role of Marty McFly in the film Back to the Future, in which he traveled through time in a time machine alongside the scientist Emmett “Doc” Brown.
The actor first began his battle with Parkinson’s disease during the nineties and unfortunately there is no cure.
The 54-year-old has been so optimistic all these years. While fighting against this disease he continues to spread awareness and helping others affected by the same disease.
His appearances in public are getting less and we recently discovered that his situation is getting progressively worse and has started to affect his body and mind way more than before.
Fox was experiencing movement and slight speech related symptoms but now sources have confirmed that the actor speech is becoming more impaired.
He slurs when speaking and one of his feet has become unresponsive to a point that he has to drag it while walking.
Sadly, it appears that the actor may be wheelchair bound in the next few years. At a recent event, he was assisted by several helpers as he wasn’t able to move around on his own.
The actor has contributed $767 million to medical research over the last twenty years.
“When it comes to treatment, I communicate with people in an honest and open manner. When people ask me if I think there will be a treatment for Parkinson’s disease in my lifetime, I always respond by saying, “I’m 60 years old, and science is difficult.” So, no,’ “Fox admitted his guilt.
Despite this, he insists that he is a contented individual: “My outlook on life is generally positive. Both morbid thoughts and a fear of dying are not anything I experience. Absolutely not, “the famous person said.
A close friend made a statement about the night saying: “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.” She continued to say that ‘Michael may be down, but he’s not out’. This is really heartbreaking. Praying for him and his family.
