Lucky Man - a hero

I've been a fan of Michael J. Fox's work as an actor since the first Back to the Future movie (it's a family favourite), but my interest grew into stunned admiration when I read Lucky Man, Fox's memoir which tells his life story especially the part after he developed Parkinson's. So I had to watch this political ad he made recently; tho I'm not into politics (this is really an ad for stem-cell research funding which is the most promising line of research for finding a cure for Parkinson's and several other diseases), and although, as Josh Marshall writes, it's "hard to watch".
