Keeping A Committed Relationship in the Face of Parkinson's

Tracy Pollan is the ultimate example of commitment in the face of Parkinson's

In 1990, Michael J. Fox felt uncontrollable twitching and shaking in his pinky finger. This was the first of many signs of Parkinson’s’ disease. Tremors in the hands, fingers, thumbs, lip or chin while relaxing is the most common sign of Parkinson’s. However, he chooses to fight and his wife, Tracy Pollan, fights with him. She is the ultimate picture of someone who knows what commitment is.
