Michael J. Fox opens up about his difficult year for People’s “Kindness” issue.

The star told the outlet, “I broke my cheek, then my hand, then my shoulder, had a replacement shoulder put in and broke my right arm, then I broke my elbow. I'm 61 years old, and I'm feeling it a little bit more.”

Additionally, his mother Phyllis died in September at the age of 92.

Despite these hardships, the Family Ties alum said, “It's been a struggle, but I'm happy. I say that because I hope on some level people can find happiness in spite of what they're going through.”
