What’s the most optimistic thing Michael J. Fox has ever done? Taken up golf, with Parkinson’s, he says. Fox has been inspiring in many ways throughout his acting career, but even more so since he came out of the closet a few years ago, revealing publicly that he had early onset Parkinson’s disease.

Since then, he has created the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research, raised millions of dollars to support the research, written two books with the unlikely titles, “Lucky Man” and “Always Looking Up, The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist”, and along the way realized he’s living the best years of his life now, even while he’s trying to golf.

He may not have played well, but that did not stop Fox from having a great time at the Principal Charity Classic Pro-Am fundraising tournament recently., raising money for local children’s charities in Iowa. “I golf terribly but everyone was so patient. It was fun.”

Having fun and living life is what it’s all about for Fox, reported “It’s important that we all get out and enjoy life and get after it, and don’t let something dictate terms to us,” said Fox. “That’s what optimism and hope are built on. It’s a shared experience. We’re all rooting for each other to do well. Things go better when we all root for each other than when we try to pull each other down.”
