Michael J Fox is an awesome celeb dad and I admire him so much for his brave fight against Parkinson’s disease in addition to his busy family life and career.  But reports surfaced today that Fox is realizing that he will likely never see a cure for Parkinson’s disease in his lifetime.

Michael J. Fox will celebrate his 50th birthday in June but sources close to the actor say he has been devastated by a recent setback in Parkinson’s research.

New research showed certain stem cells won’t be effective in treating Parkinson’s because they will be rejected by patients’ immune systems.  A source told the National Enquirer that the actor is crushed about the research findings:

“Michael is seeing his life ebb away. Turning 50 is a wake-up call. He wonders if he’ll be able to dance at his kids’ weddings. Michael had such high hopes for this potentially miraculous stem cell therapy, but now it’s back to the drawing board.”

 

Why has it taking him so long to figure out that only adult stem cells, not embryonic, are the key to Parkinson’s patients recovery.
