Excerpt from Lucky Man

In Chapter 8: Unwrapping the Gift, Michael J. Fox recounts his September 28, 1999 appearance at a hearing before the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee.
I had made a deliberate choice to appear before the subcommittee without medication. It seemed to me that this occasion demanded that my testimony about the effects of the disease, and the urgency we as a community were feeling, be seen as well as heard. For people who had never observed me in this kind of shape, the transformation must have been startling.
