Chuck Norris is 81 years old today, and we want to tell you what a wonderful man the actor is!

After an MRI caused Gena Norris to become seriously ill, Chuck made the decision to put everything else on hold and focus only on taking care of her. The actor, who also serves as his partner’s primary caregiver because of their unshakable love, has decided to fight for her in court.

The “Texas Ranger” actor talked about how his family’s life was completely ruined after his wife received a regular injection in 2013 before having an MRI for rheumatoid arthritis. Renal problems and agonizing neuralgia were among the serious adverse effects.
