Michael J Fox Reunites with ‘Back to the Future’ Co-Stars
Michael J Fox was reunited with the “Back to the Future” cast, over three decades after the first film’s release. The star took to Instagram to share some of the snapshots of the spic moment.
Michael hit fans with a wave of nostalgia after posting a series of photos with his 1985 science fiction movie cast members including Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson in his Instagram account.
“Don’t mess with Texas,” Michael wrote. “I can’t remember Doc, did you invent Instagram? @mrchristopherlloyd. Mom always liked me best @lea_thompson. The Future has arrived in Dallas.”
Michael looked happy and healthy as he posed alongside his co-stars. The actor was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, but he does not let it slow him down.
Michael’s blooming career in Hollywood came to a halt when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. During that time, he was starring in the hit TV series called “Spin City”. The actor first noticed he had a muscle tremor while he was filming for “Doc Hollywood” in Florida.
It wasn’t until 1998 that the actor revealed his diagnosis to the public and even testified to Congress.
In 2000, Michael started an organization called “Michael J. Fox Foundation” to help raise money to be used for research that would aid in finding a cure for the disease. The foundation has raised over $800 million from private donations.
The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include muscle stiffness, slurred speech, and tremors.
Being a victim of the disease has not stopped Michael from living his life to the fullest. The star is the husband to actress Tracy Pollan and a loving father to their four children.
