Michael J. Fox’s household had a moment of happiness recently as they celebrated the 34th birthday of his son, Sam. Michael commemorated the special day by sharing a touching Instagram post expressing his pride and love for his son, calling him “the best”.

Sam Michael Fox, following in his father’s footsteps, had an early start in the entertainment industry. As a child, he was an extra on the show “Spin City”. He attended a private school in Manhattan, Friends Seminary, and later graduated from Stanford University in 2012. Observant fans have often pointed out the striking physical resemblance between Sam and his famous father, remarking on their strong family likeness.

Sam Fox, after his initial acting stints, has been involved in several projects recently, including the short film “Good Grief” and his father’s upcoming documentary, “Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie”. The latter has been drawing considerable attention in the media due to its intimate portrayal of Fox’s 30-year long battle with Parkinson’s.

“Still”, promoted extensively by Michael J. Fox himself, promises to give audiences an unprecedented view into his struggle with the disease. The 61-year-old actor doesn’t shy away from candidly discussing the harsh realities of his condition in the documentary. Describing the physical pain he experiences, Fox says, “Each tremor is like a seismic jolt.”

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Michael J. Fox further explained the nature of the pain associated with his Parkinson’s disease. He clarified that the real discomfort doesn’t arise from movement but from the moments of freezing when the body refuses to move. In these moments, the inability to move becomes charged with intense energy, causing a painful, burning sensation.

Despite the considerable physical toll, which includes multiple injuries amplified by the tremors, Fox remains stoically realistic. He acknowledges the severity of his pain but emphasizes that it is part of life, something that has to be borne and moved past. He further suggests that these experiences may offer narrative potential, but ultimately, they don’t entitle one to special treatment or a “refund” from life’s hardships.

Having officially retired from acting in 2021, Michael J. Fox sparked concern when he candidly expressed the growing difficulty of his daily life due to Parkinson’s disease during a CBS Sunday Morning interview. His words highlighted the harsh reality of the disease, yet he maintained a resilient perspective, asking rhetorically, “Who do I see about that?”

As we wish Sam Michael Fox a happy birthday, we also extend our strength, love, and best wishes towards the remarkable Michael J. Fox.
