«Michael J. Fox: I won’t lie, things are becoming more difficult! 😭💔 We need to pray for Michel J. Fox!»

Actor Michael J. Fox, 37, of Canada, suffers from Parkinson’s disease, a progressive degenerative condition affecting the substantia nigra, the area of the brain that regulates movement. Parkinson’s disease generally affects the elderly, but it may sometimes afflict people in their forties or even earlier, as Mr. Fox’s case illustrates.
