Since he stunned his fans when he announced he had Parkinson's disease in 1984, boxing legend Muhammad Ali has championed research efforts and inspired others with his winning attitude.
Ali is one of more than 1 million Americans who are living with Parkinson’s disease, and each year another 60,000 are diagnosed. Parkinson’s is a progressive, debilitating disorder that starts in the brain and affects motor function.
The boxer's daughter, May May Ali, joins The Doctors to set the record straight about her father’s health and discuss new advancements in the fight against Parkinson's disease.
“Being a part of a Parkinson’s community and learning more about the disease, you and your family, is so important because it can improve your quality of life," she says. "The more you know, the better it is.”
