What better way to cap off World Parkinson's Day than with a visit to The Tonight Show? Yesterday, Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan stopped by the studio to chat with host Jimmy Fallon about their secret to a long marriage, the latest progress of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) and Tracy's upcoming Mostly Plants cookbook.
After being blown away by the more than $800 million the Foundation has funded in research, Jimmy asked Michael about what's next in Parkinson's disease (PD) research:
"Our ultimate goal is to find a cure and go out of business. We went in to business to go out of business...We're zoning in now on what are the precursors to Parkinson's, who's going to get it, before they get it. And then hopefully we can treat them with some way to stall it and stop symptoms from ever developing."
This Parkinson's Awareness Month, join a community of patients and families uniting in support of a cure for PD. Give to MJFF and support the best scientific ideas so that we can end Parkinson's and close our doors.
