At the 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Christina Applegate gave an emotional speech on being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis while walking the red carpet with her daughter, Sadie Grace LeNoble.
The actress, who was first diagnosed in 2021, has hinted that this ceremony could be her last public appearance.
As they marched together, Applegate held Sadie’s hand with genuine emotion and courage. This demonstrates that even if the future is unknown, they will continue to support one another.
At the SAG Awards in 2021, Christina Applegate wowed the crowd. The 51-year-old looked stunning in a tuxedo gown made of velvet that reached the floor.
The cane, intricately carved with the initials “FU MS,” served as a devastating reminder of her fight against multiple sclerosis, a condition she was diagnosed with in 2021.
Because of the debilitating effects of her illness, Applegate can no longer contemplate waking up early and working long hours on set, thus this will be her last award presentation as an actor.
The actress’s MS diagnosis came after she had already spent several months filming the upcoming third season of the Netflix thriller Dead to Me. Unfortunately, she gained 40 pounds from inactivity and medication as a direct result of this situation.
Yet in the end, she decided to watch the performance by herself, pausing when it became too much. She said it hurt to witness her own suffering.

Christina Applegate revealed to Clarkson that she was able to release her emotions and cope with the stress of learning she had MS by coming to work every day.
She was able to deal with the situation in Dead to Me without constantly needing to put on a show or keep a straight face.
