Selma Blair made an epic comeback at the Oscars. But not for winning a long-coveted award or for delivering a moving speech, but rather for the sheer courage of walking down the red carpet. With a cane, sometimes tearful, struggling, but with her head held high, while in the thick of an MS flareup.

This was the Cruel Intentions star’s first red carpet appearance since revealing she has multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic neurological disorder that affects around 1 million Americans. It’s characterized by loss of balance, vision and muscle control, severe pain, chronic fatigue, weakness, numbness among many other symptoms. There is no cure.

And as a result of her courage, her platform has exploded overnight. The honesty of her struggle, her strength to find the good moments, the belief that there will come better, easier times and the ability to joke about what her day-to-day life is right now resulted in an outpouring of love, support and respect.

Thank you for speaking out! My friend has had MS diagnosis for 19 years. Misdiagnosed for the 10 years before. People look at her and say she looks fine. Now she uses a walker and a scooter for distance. She also has cried a lot. Many places are not handicap accessible including where she works. Now she feels like she has some freedom to get around. A cure or at a minimum something that will allow her to live life to the fullest!!!

I loved the end of the interview when she came back to herself saying"...because I love a camera!" She's wonderful!

Some actors shine on the screen and some stay with you much after the lights have dimmed. She's one of them. Kudos to her bravery and strength to show her vulnerability.

So proud of and grateful for her courage. Acceptance and inclusion of persons with disabilities is a forgotten frontier in the fight for equality.
