47-year-old actress Selma Blair learned about her terrible diagnosis - multiple sclerosis more than a year ago. The celebrity was forced to immediately shave her head and resort to using a stick to get around. But she does not intend to give up, and every day she declares this to her fans. Yesterday, October 17, 2019, she gave a speech at the New York Forum, where she shared a story about her aggressive illness.
The first thing that the actress mentioned was the complete lack of reaction of her body to all methods of treatment. Whatever the doctors did, she was getting worse and worse every day, her condition deteriorated catastrophically quickly than everyone expected.
As a result, the doctors decided to go for the most extreme methods: stem cell transplantation and a very difficult course of chemotherapy. Selma alone was extremely careful and always made informed decisions on her own.
“I had no intention of doing this. I thought I didn't want to destroy my body, what was left of it. Why did I need to inject this terrible drug - chemotherapy? I don't have cancer! But I had no choice,”said the actress.
After a small dose of chemotherapy, Blair improved significantly and decided not to stop. But, before taking this step, the woman decided to talk to her only son in case she dies. In a conversation with their son, they decided that there would be no funeral, and the body was simply cremated. Why did the actress think about death? Because she knew she was going to be given a lethal dose of chemotherapy, different from what people with cancer do. Only transplanted stem cells can save her from death.
Now, after such a difficult procedure, the woman is afraid to say that she is completely healthy. She is undergoing a course of recovery from an illness, but she clearly does not hold optimism. We wish that all the health problems of the celebrity are in the past.
