When you think of Michael J. Fox, he's most definitely a celebrity that everyone likes.  I mean, have you ever heard of anyone saying nasty things about him?  He's only in the media when he's going to be in a movie, television show, or is 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 all the way back in 1991.

I remember when the announcement came out, and teared up for sure.  Michael is still as active as he can be acting, whether it's in his most recent television show The Good Wife, which ended its run in 2020, or as voices for 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, you know they absolutely 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 Local Today Massachusetts, that most favorite sanctuary is where they came up for the name 'Aquinnah' for one of their twin daughters.
