When they were going through her career biography they completely glossed over her Broadway career. She has been nominated for a Tony, most famously Bob Fosse’s sweet charity.

This poor woman. Breast cancer and now this. Not many know personal aspects of high profile actors, but she never seemed to be in any controversies. She seems to be upfront and straight forward.

Prayers are sent for her to maintain a mild set of symptoms and have a reduced impact of this disease on her and her family.

I was also diagnosed with MS this year. I know it’s silly, but hearing public figures open up about having MS too helps me feel like I’m not alone in those struggles. Especially since I don’t have any friends with MS

Christina has become one of my favorite actresses since playing the lead role on Dead to Me. She really has grown as an actor and has just really been bitten by the comedy bug. She does a great job in the role, and you don't know whether to laugh or cry, or even or laugh so hard you make yourself cry. Whichever strikes your fancy she's a dream.
Sending you hugs and well wishes Christina 🤗
Can't wait for the next season to air 😍 🤣😭

I was just searching up the release date for Dead To Me S3 when I saw an article about her diagnosis and I’m really shocked.. I knew and loved her from Friends as Amy Green and again as Jen Harding and from that, I watched her other works because she’s brilliant and the best. She’s been through so much. Hoping the best for you Christina and we know you got this! ❤️

So sorry she so kind great actress,☮️🕊️💕gud healing
I'll always remember her as Kelly Bundy from "Married with Children", though she has done other fine work since then.
Not fair that one of my favorite TV actresses is sick with MS and actually isn't fair that people are suffering from MS.
Such unfortunate news seeing how we all love Christina! I hope/pray she gets in touch with a good nutritionist that can get her on vitamin D therapy (etc...) given how Vit-D deficiency is a huge smoking gun regarding the cause of MS!
The late Annette Funicello was diagnosed with MS back in the late 1980's. She passed away in 2013.

Hope and wish Christina Applegate the very best. Very sorry to hear about this news.

I feel for her; for, three years ago I was diagnosed with T4 bladder cancer and given a year and a half to live. I let the doctor remove the tumor; however, I said NO to chemotherapy and radiation treatments as well as major surgery. I use a cannabis treatment instead and so far everything is going well. My best wishes to Applegate.
