In 1991, the world was shocked to learn actor Michael J. Fox had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.
He was just 29 years old and at the height of Hollywood fame, a year after the release of the blockbuster Back to the Future III. This week, documentary Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie will be released. It features interviews with Fox, his friends, family and experts.
Parkinson’s is a debilitating neurological disease characterized by motor symptoms including slow movement, body tremors, muscle stiffness, and reduced balance. Fox has already broken his arms, elbows, face and hand from multiple falls.
