Selma Blair’s life has changed a lot since her multiple sclerosis diagnosis. But she’s nothing if not adaptable, and she continues to live her life with grace, humor, and dedication.
Luckily, she has a crew of supportive people surrounding her to make that a little easier.
The 47-year-old actress gets support from her friends, like Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Constance Zimmer. The trio set up a “food train” to make sure that Selma and her 8-year-old son, Arthur, could easily eat regular meals, People reports.
Arthur helps lend his mom strength, too. Selma spoke to ET about how their tight-knit relationship has evolved post-MS diagnosis.
“He’s had to endure a lot; he’s seen a lot,” Selma said. “He says, ‘Mommy’s not sick. Mommy’s brave.'”
Selma and Arthur have even come up with ways to adapt their favorite games to Selma’s needs.
“We play dodgeball, but I don’t dodge because that could be so dangerous,” she explained, referencing her lack of balance due to MS. “Maybe in the future for sure, but I don’t move side to side perfectly. So I get to just hit him and then he throws it back to me, really chivalrously. And then I get to hit him again, and he thinks it’s amazing.”
