MICHAEL J FOX doesn't resent having Parkinson's disease - because fighting for a cause close to his heart is much more worthwhile than being a celebrity.
The SPIN CITY star has devoted his life to his Parkinson's foundation, and is determined to get the government to invest money in research to find a cure for the disease.
He says, "Yeah, there's loss. But there's also gain. Someone could say that's a bunch of gobbledegook but it's not. My life today is a much more vital life than just being the boy prince of Hollywood."
"It is reality. I've never been more alive, more excited. I used to be more of a go-along, get-along guy, happy-go-lucky. "But now I have so much joy in my life because I am so much in my life. Before so much was done for me. I have never been more alive."
