Christina Applegate is still best remembered by the audience for her role as the rebellious teenager Kelly Bundy in the series "Marriage Waters", which brought her fame and popularity in the early 90s. Applegate has had numerous ups and downs in her career, as well as in her personal life, and everything took a turn for the worse after her divorce from actor Johnathon Schaech.
Just a few months after the divorce, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and last year, on her 50th birthday, she revealed that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Recently, the actress rarely appears in public, and now on her Twitter profile, she shared a photo of five different sticks that she plans to use during what she said was an important event.
"I have a very important ceremony coming up. This will be my first time out since being diagnosed with MS. Walking sticks are now part of my new normal. Thank you @neowalksticks for these beauties. Stay tuned to see which ones make the cut for a week of stuff." she wrote.
Christina then told fans that they will soon have a chance to see which stick she chose.

"We've been through a lot already … and we survived because we had each other." "This is the first time anyone’s going to see me the way I am," the actress from Married With Children and Samantha Who? told the New York Times.
"I put on 40 pounds; I can’t walk without a cane. I want people to know that I am very aware of all of that." Applegate — who previously battled breast cancer — added, equally fiercely, that there is no "acceptance" of MS in her life.
"I’m never going to accept this," she said. "I’m pissed." "If people hate it, if people love it, if all they can concentrate on is, 'Ooh, look at the cripple,' that’s not up to me," Applegate said. "I’m sure that people are going to be, like, ‘I can’t get past it.'
Fine, don’t get past it, then. But hopefully people can get past it and just enjoy the ride and say goodbye to these two girls."
