Michael J. Fox
Michael J. Fox, OC (born Michael Andrew Fox; June 9, 1961) is a Canadian American actor, author, producer, activist and voice-over artist. With a film and television career spanning from the late 1970s, Fox's roles have included Marty McFly from the Back to the Future trilogy (1985"1990); Alex P.

Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991, and disclosed his condition to the public in 1999. He semi-retired from acting in 2000 as the symptoms of his disease became more severe. He has since become an activist for research toward finding a cure. This led him to create The Michael J. Fox Foundation. On March 5, 2010, Sweden's Karolinska Institutet awarded him a doctorate of medicine degree, Honoris causa, for his work in advocating and fundraising for a cure for Parkinson's disease.
