This Thursday TEN screens The Oprah Winfrey Show in which Oprah talls to Michael J. Fox.
It’s been 11 years since he revealed to the world that he had been living with Parkinson’s disease. Here he speaks about how the disease has affected his wife and children and issues concerning stem cell research.
“We had eight years where there was no forward progress and some things people don’t even understand,” he says.
“For example, if you say no federal funding for stem cell research, that means if there’s a university or hospital that receives any funding for anything, they can’t do even privately funded stem cell research,” he says. “The kind of iterations of impact were really severe.”
“How much medication did you have to take in preparation for today?” Oprah asks.
“A boatload,” Michael says.
It airs 1pm Thursday on TEN.
