Michael made the decision to retire in 2020 after continuing as long as his body allowed with Parkinson’s disease which can cause involuntary body tremors and stiff, inflexible muscles.

Unwilling to state publicly that he had the nervous system disorder at the time, he tried to incorporate it into the roles he played.

He retired from showbusiness in 1998 and established the Michael J. Fox Foundation, a non-governmental organization that funds research for a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia for World Parkinson’s Day last year, Michael said he was “absolutely certain” they were “the tip of the spear” in finding a cure.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation has already funded £767 million in research in less than 20 years.
