In the late 90’s, Back to the Future actor began his fight with Parkinson’s disease, which unfortunately, even today has no cure. The 54-year-old has been nothing but POSITIVE all these years, fighting against this disease, spreading awareness, and helping others affected by the same disease.
But we recently found that things are becoming worse for the actor as the disease has started affecting his body and mind a lot more than before. So far, Fox was experiencing movement and slight speech related symptoms but now sources have confirmed that the 54-year-old actor is becoming more speech impaired.
There’s too much slurring when he talks and also, one of his feet has become unresponsive to a point that he has to drag it while walking. Sadly, it appears that the actor may be wheelchair bound in the next few years. At a recent event, he was assisted by several helpers as he wasn’t able to move around on his own.
A close friend made a statement about the night saying: “It was heartbreaking. Michael’s bravery knows no bounds. But as the disease takes its toll on his body, even he is beginning to see that his battle is a losing one.” She continued to say that ‘Michael may be down, but he’s not out’. This is really heartbreaking. Praying for him and his family.
