Episode Info:

Michael J. Fox was diagnosed with young on-set Parkinson's Disease in 1991. He threw himself into his work and fell into moments of depression and alcohol abuse. But, in 1998, when he went public with his story, he changed the way the world looked at Parkinson's Disease and has now raised nearly a billion dollars in research through the Michael J. Fox Foundation, which he founded. And he inspired many other people with the disease to not let it stop them -- including Alan Alda. Alan was diagnosed 3 years ago and recently went public with his own story about living with Parkinson's. In this exclusive interview, Alan and Michael join one another for a raw and revealing conversation, recorded live in Michael's apartment.
