Ozzy Osbourne is honoring Parkinson’s Awareness Month by donating a portion of his merch sales to charity.

The Prince of Darkness announced ten percent of all sales of past tour merch available on the Ozzfest official eBay site will go to The Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Ozzy went public with his Parkinson’s diagnosis in January in an exclusive interview on Good Morning AmericaHe would later tell The Los Angeles Times that he was actually first diagnosed with Parkinson’s back in 2003.

“I’m not dying from Parkinson’s. I’ve been working with it most of my life,” said Osbourne. “I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh, my God!’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.'” Osbourne also mentioned that he takes medication for tremors, but one of the side effects include short-term memory loss.
