Michael J Fox gives a health update who has 'struggle' with multiple broken bones

Michael J Fox has admitted that the past year has been a "struggle" one after suffering the death of his mother as well as several broken bones.

The 61-year-old Back to the Future actor was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's disease in 1991, when he was 29.

According to the NHS website, Parkinson's is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.

In an interview with People magazine, he said that his health had gotten "worse" over the past year.

He said: "It got worse since, I broke my cheek, then my arm, then my shoulder, put in a replacement shoulder, and broke my (right) arm, then I broke my elbow.

Spin City star Michael J Fox, who officially retired from acting in 2020, also grappled with the death of his beloved mother Phyllis, who died at the age of 92 in September.

It has been a struggle, but I am happy, he said.

Earlier this month, Michael J Fox delighted fans by making an appearance at New York's Comic Con, where he arrived with his Back to the Future co-star Christopher Lloyd.

It was a personal victory for him as he was able to walk unassisted on the stage.  Fox said how it is a mission not to fall down anymore, whether that means using a walker, a wheelchair, a cane, or a man with a belt around my waist.
