Chapter 3. WHO WANTS TO KNOW WHAT ABOUT WHOM? > Celebrities Can Educate, Too

Celebrities Can Educate, Too

Most of us think of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly from Back to the Future, reworking history so that his parents are happy and successful, or as the not-quite sleazy mayor's aide in Spin City. Yet, when he announced that he was quitting the show because he suffered from Parkinson's Disease, we were shocked. In the interviews and specials which followed, we learned a great deal about the disease and how it affects families, famous or not. Figure 3.3 shows the Web site for the Michael J. Fox foundation, where you can find lots of information on Parkinson's, current research, and resources.
