Comedian Christina Applegate says she has multiple sclerosis. She writes on her Twitter channel. The actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.
The 49-year-old Emmy winner wrote on Twitter late Monday night (local time) to her 1.4 million followers: “Hey guys. I was diagnosed with MS a few months ago.” It’s a “hard way,” but it has the support of other patients. Applegate closes a second tweet with the words: “That’s why I’m now asking for privacy. While I’m going through this thing. Thank you.”
It’s not Applegate’s first health setback. In 2008, the actress had her breasts removed after being diagnosed with cancer. In 2017, her ovaries and fallopian tubes were removed to prevent cancer recurrence. The Hollywood star suffers from a mutation in the BRCA1 gene, which greatly increases the risk of cancer in women. Applegate has been a mother since 2011. She was on the TV series in the ’90s “Awesome nice family” Known as Kelly Bundy.
Applegate’s colleague, Selma Blair from “Super sweet and super sexy” (2002), announced a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis to the public in 2018. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disorder that causes inflammation in the spinal cord and brain. The cycle is very different and unpredictable. Inflammation can heal, but the patient’s condition can worsen over the years.
