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 hope she is ok. Prayers for her recovery.

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! ❤️
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.

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.

I remember when this was a rare diagnosis and pretty much a death sentence. Then I worked for a neurologist and every other patient had it, and it’s treatable now. I’ve seen patients symptoms go into remission with the right medication. My brother was diagnosed with it a couple of years ago. So far he’s doing fine.

Go! You super strong woman! My father was diagnosed in 1973; I was born in 1974. He was bedridden and could not talk either. He passed away at 58 in 2001. I'm scared I could have MS. I've been having a lot of problems walking and numbness around my chest and abdomen. So, waiting for an MRI on my back.
So proud of your strength!!💜

I'm kinda glad to hear this my sister has MS and she's a fam of Christina Applegate maybe this news will give her some support and encouragement
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 was diagnosed in '09. On the positive, we have a lot more meds on the market today than ever before.
