Michael Lee's friend Stephen had just moved to another state with his father. He told Michael that his mother was acting strangely and he needed to live with his father in California for a while. A few days after he told Michael that, his mother flew to California and killed Stephen.

His friend's mother had schizophrenia, and she harbored delusions that led her to believe she was protecting her son from harm by killing him. This thinking is all too normal with schizophrenia, but a scenario like this could not have been more a shock.

How does one cope with a loss this sudden? This is Michael Lee's personal theory.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.
