Fox Looks For A Parkinson's Cure In Israel

Movie star MICHAEL J FOX is planning a secret trip to Israel in a last-ditch effort to find a cure for the Parkinson's Disease that has ravaged his body. The Back To The Future star's hopes of finding a cure in America were dashed last year (06) when politicians voted not to pass legislation allowing stem-cell research - something Fox and his supporters were fighting for. So the actor is looking elsewhere for medical help - in a bid to halt his neurological problems, before they put him in a wheelchair for life. The 45-year-old is hoping a Jerusalem-based scientist, who has been researching the disease for years, can find a breakthrough, and has handed the expert over $1 million (GBP500,000) from his Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. And now the actor is planning a trip to Jerusalem in a desperate bid for help. The expert holding his hope, Professor Benjamin Reubinoff tells US tabloid the National Enquirer, "We are looking forward to seeing Michael here. His funding is helping tremendously."

Michael J. Fox doesn't need to go to Israel to find a cure for PD. I've just done so with an intravenous implant of umbilical cord blood stem cells carried out by Frank Morales, MD.Cheers,Glenn
