Movie star Michael J Fox is planning a secret trip to Israel in a last-ditch effort to find a cure for the Parkinson’s Disease that has ravaged his body.
The Back To The Future star’s hopes of finding a cure in America were dashed last year when politicians voted not to pass legislation allowing stem-cell research – something Fox and his supporters were fighting for.
So the actor is looking elsewhere for medical help – in a bid to halt his neurological problems, before they put him in a wheelchair for life.
The 45-year-old is hoping a Jerusalem-based scientist, who has been researching the disease for years, can find a breakthrough, and has handed the expert over $1 million from his Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
And now the actor is planning a trip to Jerusalem in a desperate bid for help.
The expert holding his hope, Professor Benjamin Reubinoff tells US tabloid the National Enquirer: “We are looking forward to seeing Michael here. His funding is helping tremendously.”
