The Married… with Children alum officially announced her MS diagnosis on Twitter early last year in August.
‘Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS. It was a strange journey. But I’ve been so supported by people I know who also have this condition,’ Christina explained at the time.
“It has been a touch road. But as we all know the road continues,’ the star added, showing her positivity towards her condition.
Multiple sclerosis, also categorized simply as MS, is a disease that targets the central nervous system and interrupts signals to properly pass between the brain and the body, according to the National MS Society website.
