In 1998, Fox publicly disclosed that he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease seven years earlier. Fox subsequently became an advocate for finding a cure and founded the Michael J. Fox Foundation in 2000 to help fund research. Although the disease's worsening symptoms forced Fox to have a less active career, he continued to make guest appearances on television, including recurring roles on the FX comedy-drama ''Rescue Me'' (2009) and the CBS legal drama ''The Good Wife'' (2010–2016) that garnered him critical acclaim. He also worked in voice-over, voicing the title character in the ''Stuart Little'' films (1999–2005) and the lead of the animated film ''Atlantis: The Lost Empire'' (2001). His final major role was on the NBC sitcom ''The Michael J. Fox Show'' (2013–2014). Fox retired from acting in 2020 due to his declining health.
