Legendary Actor, Author, and Activist
Michael J Fox is one of the most well-known and well-loved actors of all time, starring in the Back to the Future trilogy, The Secret of My Success, Bright Lights, Big City, Doc Hollywood, and many more. He also made famous the character of lovable conservative Alex P. Keaton on NBC’s enormously popular “Family Ties.”
Fox is the recipient of several lifetime achievement awards for accomplishments in acting, as well as several Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. Fox is the author of three bestselling books, ‘Lucky Man’, ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future,’ and ‘Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist.’
Fox has spoken and written extensively about his predisposition to look at challenges — including his Parkinson’s disease – through a lens of optimism and humor. His message has always been one of gratitude for the support he has received from his fellow Parkinson’s patients, and hope and encouragement for every decision to take action — no matter how big or small — to help advance the pursuit of a cure.
