His relationship has stood the Hollywood test of time. Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan have been married 25 years. The actor told Ellen how they celebrated their anniversary.  

Ellen asked him, "What do you do that bugs her, and what does she do that bugs you?" "I mumble. I speak in a kind of monotone mumble and she can't hear me… that bugs her. I'm an optimist. I'm famous for my positive outlook and I expect the best things to happen. Tracy's a realist and a bit of a pessimist and a bit of a hypochondriac. So, she gets a blister on her toe and the foot’s coming off… I say, 'Oh, well!'… she doesn't want to hear that."

Tracy Pollan is in my all-time favorite episode of "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit." She played a character named, "Harper" and was absolutely phenomenal. It was one of those episodes/characters you mull over for weeks afterwards.

Tracy Pollan was probably the NICEST young actress in the industry when she was his TV girlfriend in Family Affair. If he had not married her, I would have made a try. This girl is the real thing, unlike almost everyone else in Hollywood. He is a lucky man, yes, considering everything, he is a lucky man.

I think his positive attitude is great . My mom had Parkinson's and if you do not keep a sense of humor and remain positive the disease takes its toll faster. I admire all he has done for Parkinson's research! My mom also never complained and remained positive.

Attention: Michael J.Fox, his Associates and His Friends who would like to help him with Parkinson's.

google; (Michael V. Caldwell Treating Apparatus Patent Application)

To..view a device that I Invented and needs to be dialed in but once dialed in this device will have the capability of reading Michael's Vitals at all times and administer (in a fine mist form) his medications that he needs. What makes this device Unique is that it will administer ONLY what the body requires nothing more and nothing less. The Reason is because it will be able to read vitals and when the vitals are stable this device will sense it and shut off the silent mini air compressor that administers the medication.

This device will be stealth in nature. The only visible part of this device to the public will be a BLUE TOOTH phone type that entertainers use every day when speaking to the public. The small air tube that administers the medication in a fine mist will be worn under the clothing thus making it stealth. The silent air mini air compressor will be housed in a compact unit that will be able to hold up to 3 different types of medications and have one vial that will hold a clean out vial of distilled water. This device will sense when a new medication is going to be used and clean out the air tube before the new medication is sent to the patient. This will ensure that there is no chance of mixing medications. The 4 total mini vials will be able to turn in a circular motion to administer different needed medications. (the round size of this part of the device will be about the size of a round breath mint container that you can purchase at any store) The mini air compressor will be utilizing small rechargeable batteries that will hold a charge for up to 12 hours and the patient will be able plug it in the wall at night and charge it up for the next day. This device will also be able to be used as a blue tooth phone. This device will read the persons blood pressure, temperature and breath as well. This device will extend out above the mouth and below the nose it will look like just another blue tooth device the small spray nozzle will not be seen and the vine spray will not be seen as well when in use. Stealth in nature because the spray is so fine.

The housing part of this device will be a little larger than a cell phone, about the size of a battery operated aquarium pump that will be worn under the shirt or clothing making it also Stealth utilizing a mini silent battery pump. (which is what I used to build a rough but very good working simple prototype that worked perfectly) This was a simple prototype to make sure the pump would administer in a very fine mist almost air to the nozzle and it did ! ! !


I just want to help a Good Person if I can. This device will save lives and do so much more. The sky is the limit of what this Invention/ Device will be able to do. Example, Heart patient that need nitro glycerin, this device will be able to read his vitals and administer in a spray form his nitro glycerin faster to him than any other device and he can call 911 with this device, Diabetics...DITTO on and on and on. Feel free to contact me on Facebook, Michael V.Caldwell or mikezz32@yahoo.com
