A Parkinson’s disease research foundation, started by Canadian actor Michael J. Fox will be the beneficiary of an art work auction in Dallas. Artwork from Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson’s three-day return to comics in June is expected to fetch more than 10-thousand dollars when it goes on the block.
The artwork is being sold on behalf of Team Cul de Sac, a charity established in honour of cartoonist Richard Thompson, who has Parkinson’s. The proceeds will to to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Fox, the 53 year old Edmonton native, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991
