Selma Blair is providing an update on her battle with multiple sclerosis.
The 47-year-old actress attended the TIME 100 Health Summit on Thursday (October 17) where she opened up to Dr. Oz and Robin Roberts about the “aggressive” chemotherapy treatment she is undergoing.

“The disease modifiers didn’t work for me at the time, and I was really declining more rapidly than I found acceptable,” Selma shared before revealing that she has decided to try chemotherapy. “Why would I put this horrible drug in it — chemotherapy, I don’t have cancer. But I was kind of out of options and I was looking.”
After a small dose of chemo gave her relief, Selma said it encouraged her to go through with the treatment.
“I was warned. You kind of make your plans for death. I told my son I’m doing this you know and he would like me cremated,” Selma continued. “You have more chemo than for cancer patients, because the aim is to almost kill you and it’s the stem cells that allow you to live with the amount of chemo. The chemo is the MS cure, if it in fact does happen.”
Selma first revealed she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last October.
