When you think of Michael J. Fox, he's a celebrity that everyone likes. You can even watch every episode of the show that made him a household name, Family Ties, on various streaming apps.

He's only in the media when he's going to be in a movie or a guest star on a television show, or when he's advocating for his Michael J. Fox Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's Disease.  That's something Michael was diagnosed with back in 1991.

I remember that when the announcement came out, I teared up.  Michael is still as active as he can be, whether he's acting in his most recent television show The Good Wife, which ended its run in 2020, or voicing various movie characters.

Of course, his main focus is his foundation with his family, including his daughter, who's named after a quaint Massachusetts town.

If you follow Michael or his wife Tracy Pollan, whom he met on Family Ties, you know they love to vacation in Martha's Vineyard and have a home in Aquinnah.

Aquinnah is located on the very western tip of Martha's Vineyard, and according to WBSM in New Bedford, Massachusetts, that most favorite sanctuary is where they came up with the name 'Aquinnah' for one of their twin daughters.
