Cure for Parkinson’s is a passion for Fox

SHARE Cure for Parkinson’s is a passion for Fox

Being diagnosed with Parkinson's has given Michael J. Fox a new perspective on life, as well as a passion to help find a cure for the degenerative disease.

"I didn't have this passion when my biggest concern was how big my Winnebago was or whether or not this movie was going to do as well as the last movie," the actor tells Jane Pauley on "Dateline NBC," which airs Monday.

"It's interesting, because as it gets worse, I get stronger, so it's offset," the former "Spin City" star said. Fox, 39, is writing a book about his experience.
