Selma Blair has revealed she is in remission from multiple sclerosis after a 3-year battle with the disease.
Blair has suffered from the autoimmune disease since 2018. She underwent chemotherapy and stem cell treatment to fight the condition.
“My prognosis is great,” she said during a Television Critics Association panel. “I’m in remission. Stem cell put me in remission.”
“It took about a year after stem cell from the inflammation and lesions to really go down, so I was reluctant to talk about it because I felt this need to be more healed and more fixed.” She said. “I’ve accrued a lifetime of some baggage in the brain that still needs a little sorting out or accepting. That took me a minute to get to that acceptance. It doesn’t look like this for everyone.”
According to People, the 49-year-old actress had suffered from intense pain and difficulty speaking after her diagnosis. Though stem cell treatment is not a cure for the condition, it can dramatically reduce its symptoms.
