Michael J Fox appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman last night to discuss Parkinson's Awareness Month (April), his own diagnosis, and steps his foundation is taking to find a cure. It's been 22 years since his diagnosis, and Michael looks and sounds great.
Here's the remark I liked best:
To be kind of corny about it, once you accept it, and you learn about it... and realize you're in a position to do something about it, and to make a difference, and to help, well then just, like, quit your bitching and get on with it.
The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation included a "Raise Awareness" page on its site. Among other resources, it provides an online toolkit to help people learn about PD, share information with others, and support the efforts to treat, cure, and prevent Parkinson’s.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation posted an eight-question quiz about the disease.
How many questions can you answer correctly?
