Christina Applegate announced this morning, via twitter that she is suffering from MS, Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system and is considered an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system attacks its own healthy cells. It affects quality of life and can be disabling.
The 49-year-old, known for her roles in "Bad Moms," "Married... with Children" and "Dead to Me," said in a tweet published overnight that she was diagnosed "a few months ago."
Christina is absolutely a fighter. You may remember, back in 2008, she made the very difficult decision to under go a double mastectomy. We wish her the best and that she gets the privacy she's asked for while she begins this next battle.
