26 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

American actor Michael J. Fox has scooped a $4 million deal from book publishers Hyperion for the rights to his memoirs. After a public fight for the book, Hyperion has come up with the best offer for the retrospective, which will chronicle the Back to the Future (1985) star's struggle with Parkinson's Disease. Fox will be relying on computer voice recognition programs to write the book, as he cannot type. All proceeds from the book will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. It's hoped that Fox will deliver the book by the end of the year. »

Michael J. Fox Stunned By Generous Public

12 July 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Brave star Michael J. Fox is constantly amazed at how generous people are in supporting his campaign to find a cure for Parkinson's disease. The Back to the Future (1985) actor was diagnosed with the debilitating condition back in 1991, and has now given up his role in hit comedy Spin City to devote himself to fund-raising for his Foundation for Parkinson's Research. And since giving up acting, Fox has been overwhelmed with support from the general public. He says, "I'm running out of ways to say thank you - but people don't seem to be running out of ways to be supportive. Strangers come up to me in restaurants and on the street to put checks into my hand. I've seen amazing things and met amazing people." And it's not just the public who have been helping out - the latest big-money donation came from basketball star Jayson Williams, who gave him $50, 000, including a $10, 000 check. »

Michael J. Fox To Write Book For Fellow Parkinson's Sufferers

17 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

MICHAEL J. FOX is planning to write a book about how to stay sane when you are suffering from Parkinson's Disease. The actor who has now quit his popular SPIN CITY sitcom, says that as well as spending more time with his family, he will also spend his break from acting at work on a completely different goal. He explains, "I think at some time I may write a book. I'm as jaded about celebrity memoirs as everyone else is, so that's not what I want to do... Someone was asking me the other day, what would I write and I said, 'How to lose your brain, without losing your mind.'" And the Back to the Future (1985) star admits although he wants to help his fellow suffers, he finds it very strange that the disease is now permanently linked to his name. He adds, "I get e- mails from people all the time saying, 'I finally told a co-worker that I had Parkinson's, The Michael J Fox disease. ' I find that all pretty heavy." »

Parkinson's Disease Now Slowing Michael J. Fox

10 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

MICHAEL J. FOX is now beginning to feel the effects of PARKINSON'S DISEASE which he has been suffering from for seven years. The Back to the Future (1985) star, who has recently quit TV show SPIN CITY to battle the illness, admits he's now suffering more. He says, "I'm slower than I was. I'm not as dexterous. I'm as strong as I was, but not as agile." But, Fox, 38, is optimistic that a cure will be found saying, "I'm completely confident that in my 50s this will be gone." He adds, "Not to get too mawkish about it, but I didn't become a man until I had this. It has given me kind of a serenity and a clarity that I wouldn't have had otherwise." »
