Fox and Pollan will continue to manage Parkinson's disease
Fox's family has rallied behind him to make things work. Right now, his kids are all grown up, but they still have to be very stoic about Fox's diagnosis. But Pollan and Fox deal with Parkinson's in the same way as they deal with everything—as a team. Fox told AARP magazine last year about how Pollan reacted to his Parkinson's diagnosis in 1991:
"Tracy wasn't sentimental or romantic about it at all. No terror. No big windy [...] So, no exhibition of grief and fear. Tracy was just like, 'You've got a stone in your shoe. We'll do what we can until you can get it out. In the meantime, if you limp with the stone, that's all right. You can hold my hand, and we'll get over that.'"
