In 1991, Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, an incurable degenerative condition. He was 29 years old at the time.
He and Pollan kept the news and did not go public with his diagnosis for several years. Even though the news was a hard blow, the couple held on and supported each other through the difficult times.
The doctors told them that Fox would still be able to function for many years. In 1998, he finally opened up to the public about his diagnosis.
He received a lot of encouragement and support. In 2000, he opened his foundation, the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
