3:47 am
>> what did you know about parkinson's? >> somebody's grandmother had it. it was not a thing i noticed or thought about. i was a 29-year-old guy. >> did the doctor know who you were? >> yeah. in fact, that's one of the few times in my life i felt like saying do you know who i am? it was ridiculous. you can't tell me that. this was a case where i just thought it's preposterous that this is happening to me. >> reporter: his slurred speech, muscle stiffness, and tremors are the signature symptoms of the disease. >> he said they're working on some things, there are things in the pipeline. >> reporter: he leavened it with a little bit of -- >> little bit of hope. but -- but it wasn't enough for me. i felt very shocked by it. >> things like degenerative. >> and progressive. >> no cure. >> yeah no, cure. all the stuff that now is just irrelevant to me. i'm not about measuring how long
3:48 am
something will last or how long can i do this. it's pointless. it's just another thing you face and you carry on. >> reporter: but there was a long private struggle before he went public. >> i took seven years between when i was diagnosed and when i went public with it. so i took a long selfish period of time when i just dealt with how it affected me and i was concerned with me and accent on me. >> ladies and gentlemen, if you'd step forward -- >> reporter: finally revealing his diagnosis in 1998. >> mr. fox, we're going to start with you. >> reporter: and testifying before congress. >> az began to understand what research might promise for the future, i became hopeful that i would not face the terrible suffering so many with parkinson's endure. but i was shocked and frustrated to learn the amount of funding for parkinson's research is so meager. >> reporter: in 2000 he went all in. fox formed a team to raise money targeted toward research that would lead to improved

3:50 am
find an answer. >> you've heard this a thousand times, but it couldn't have happened to a better person. >> yeah. i'm getting used to that idea. >> reporter: no one here would argue. michael, are you with the longest history in this room? >> i suppose so. 25 years i was diagnosed. >> 25. who's next after 25 years? >> 10 years. >> 10 years. >> i'm at 11. >> 11. >> i'm at 18. >> 18. >> mm-hmm. >> you must have been very young. >> yeah. i was. i was 29 when my symptoms started coming out and 31 when i got the diagnosis. >> reporter: typically, a late in life disease, only one in ten develops early onset parkinson's like fox did. >> what was your first symptom? >> tremor. >> reporter: these men and women are part of a fox foundation online data base. >> we need to provide all the information we can. >> reporter: where patients join researchers in the quest for breakthroughs. >> you tell them when your

things happening. but the principal thing is the exchange. so i'm much less concerned with being still and not being collaborative and engauged. i could make myself still. but i won't be -- >> show me what happens if you make yourself still. >> but we're not talking. >> if i talk i start to move. >> soon as you start talking you start to move? >> well, because i'm -- things are firing. i have to think. and the same neurons that fire my thinking fire my body. >> there you go. >> reporter: michael j. fox is more than the face of parkinson's. >> breathe. >> reporter: with two best-selling memoirs infused with his indomitable spirit and optimism, he's the face of hope.
3:53 am
>> it was actually his books that got me out of -- the first two years i didn't plan for the future. i did nothing. i mean, i literally didn't even have a bank account really. it was just like -- i had no idea how long i was going to be functional. but reading the books, there was a level of just like ferocious positivity of just like fierce optimism that got my fire lit again. so thank you. >> reporter: now 57, michael j. fox is a grateful man. married 30 years to actress tracy pollan, they have four children. >> unfortunately, i have my operation in a week's time and i just want to make sure this is handled. >> reporter: and he's still a working and award-winning actor. >> this for my kidney failure. >> do you presume there's still
3:54 am
special things ahead of you? >> oh, yeah. sure. lots. a breakthrough for parkinson's. i look forward to grandkids. i look forward to weddings. and i look forward to books. >> so 50 years from now do you think you'll be remembered for the "back to the future" movies or for a cure for parkinson's? >> i had a moment withdhe said, it someday there's going tieb cure for parkinson's and it's going to be because of you. and it was the first time struc. and i don't know if i took it seriously. but i feel a part of something. not necessarily leading it, not necessarily the reason it's all going to happen. but i feel part of something that is much more special than -- if it happens
