Neil Cavuto: MS Diagnosis ‘Made Me Do Things I Never Would Have Done’

CavutoFox News and Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto is the subject of USA Weekend’s Cause Celeb feature talking about his work to raise awareness for¬†Multiple sclerosis. Cavuto reflects on how his life changed after his diagnosis:

His wife says it was “divine inspiration” that led to Cavuto’s on-air disclosure of his own MS while interviewing a pharmaceutical executive.

“I don’t think I would have adopted my boys (Jeremy, 12, Bradley, 11; he also has a daughter Tara, 28) had I not had the illness. It humanized me, taught me not to be a jerk. It made me do things I never would have done,” says the initially reluctant advocate. “It forced me to focus on things that were important.”
