Selma Blair, @selmablair announced that she has multiple sclerosis. The first thing I did was shoot her a message on Instagram in hopes she will take some time and research HSCT.
For those of us that have experienced the fear of MS, and the hope that HSCT brings it is hard not to try to get a celebrity like Selma to bring some attention to the life-changing procedure. I mentioned my blog on her Instagram page and have received a ton of visitors. I suspect people with a connection to MS are coming out of the woods to support her. I am one of them.
I am curious how many of those Selma supporters have heard of the procedure, and how many will have their American doctors tell them not to do it.
We have a long way to go. Maybe Selma will give it a look. Maybe Selma will have the procedure. Maybe Selma can change the way doctors treat multiple sclerosis in this country.
