On February 7, 2012, after denying four years of progressive symptoms, I was officially diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, radically changing my life. I walked home from my appointment, through the snow, feeling very alone. But I wasn't. Family and friends have given me endless support, never hesitating to listen to my complaints or to offer help. I have so much for which to be thankful.

An estimated six million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease, a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. The Michael J. Fox Foundation, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, is working to change this. MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

This year, I am participating in the Michael J. Fox Foundation's Tour de Fox Wine Country ride to raise money for the foundation and its research programs. Your support of my participation in this event will be greatly helpful and appreciated.

Happy to support the cause Jack. I know from my industry that the MJF Foundation is a strong proponent for PD research. Several of the biotechs we work with are collaborating with MJF. It’s a great organization and you my friend are a super human being who both Chyna and I are blessed to have met. Good luck on your ride Saturday..... We know you’ll do fantastic......
