Bid on The Ozzfest Page on eBay
Ozzy Osbourne along with Black Sabbath will be donating part of their sales from their tour merchandise to The Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research. Fans can place their bid on various items such as clothing, apparel, posters, key chains, and signed CDs on eBay.
Osbourne wrote on Twitter, “Past tours exclusive merch last bits of remaining stock available until sold out! April is #ParkinsonsAwarenessMonth so 10 per cent of ALL sales going directly to the @MichaelJFoxOrg for #Parkinsons research.”
The 71-year old iconic rocker was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease way back in 2003 but only revealed it to the public last January. He had to postpone his tour dates to seek further treatment and was supposed to travel to Switzerland this April but the trip was canceled because of travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Osbourne previously said, “Everyone thinks I’ve just discovered the Parkinson’s. I’ve known about the Parkinson’s since 2003. And it’s not like the Michael J. Fox one, thank God. It’s a milder thing that I have, but still — it’s there. I can’t let it stop me.”
Michael J. Fox, best known for his role as Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, was only 29 years old when he got diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991.
