|"The ten years since my diagnosis have been the best ten years of my life, and I consider myself a lucky man."|
|From: Lucky Man by Michael J. Fox|
Have you ever wanted something so badly that you said, "I'd do anything to get it"? Did you want it badly enough to sell all your furniture and live on macaroni and cheese while you worked to get it? Did you want it badly enough to keep working even when you were sometimes too shaky to feed yourself or even to speak? Well, Michael J. Fox does.
Michael J. Fox, whose real name is Michael Andrew Fox, was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on June 9, 1961. He spent his childhood moving from town to town in Canada because of his father's job. Finally in the early 1970s, the family settled in Burnaby, British Columbia.
