Claim: Michael J. Fox a hero to those with Parkinson's disease, and many more. He is a philanthropic inspiration to people suffering from the disease. Evidence: Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease when he was only twenty nine years old, according to Rolling Stone Magazine. He had been on several shows and movies by then, but he was not ready to end his career. Michael created his charity: The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Since then he has done interviews, talk shows, and many other events to help spread knowledge about his disease. The doctor said he only had ten more years to live if he didn't do anything, but is has now been more then twenty, and he is still standing. Analysis: Michael J. Fox is a true hero. His philanthropic personality and charity has helped spread awareness about Parkinson's, and that when things get hard you have to keep going.
This article talked about his heroic life before and after Parkinson's. His acting career, and his charity. He inspired many people when he was a young actor, and then when he got diagnosed, he was even more of an inspiration.
This website would be ranked two because it shows the work he has done for his charity, and people with Parkinson's. Creating the charity was one of the most heroic things he's has done.
I think this is the third most heroic article, because the title is literally "Michael J. Fox: The Toughest Man on TV". Also in the article it explains how Parkinson's is not preventing him from doing things in his life.
I would rank this article a four because while not showing his heroism as much as the others, it does explain how he did interviews and spoke out about Parkinson's.
This article talked about how Michael is trying to beat Parkinson's, and how he is trying to help others. However, the article did not highlight his heroism. It mentioned it a few times, but mainly focused on his career before he got sick. While he still inspired people as an actor, the real thing that made him a hero was his charity and spreading the word about Parkinson's disease.
