Applegate will be attending her first event since she was diagnosed with MS. She shared news of this approaching occasion along with details of the new normal for her in a Twitter post that shows her canes. In the comments, she elaborated further on what use each cane fulfills and what her go-to is.

Last summer, Applegate announced news of her condition with another post that said, “A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS.” She continued to share, “It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some ahole blocks it.”

For a decade, Applegate was known as the face of Kelly Bundy in the sitcom Married… with Children. Life looks different now, with canes now a topic Applegate is mindful of. She discussed as much in the replies to her post, where one user mentioned activators. This device was designed by an occupational therapist for rehabilitation and long-term use alike; the user liked them for having a hand rest, calling them, “Not pretty but good quality.”

Applegate is actually already familiar with this tool. She replied, “The activator is what I use daily. Love mine. But these events I wanted fancy I guess. My activator has stickers that say FUMS so wasn’t sure if that was appropriate haha.” Applegate also lives by advice she shared, “As one of my friends that has MS said ‘we wake up and take the indicated action’. And that’s what I do. So now I ask for privacy. As I go through this thing. Thank you xo.”
