Her bright blonde pixie cut looked stylish as she swept it into a side parting while she signed an autograph for a fan. She also protected herself by Covid-19 by wearing a floral mask.
The documentary follows the Cruel Intentions star’s courage journey with Multiple Sclerosis, which she was diagnosed with back in 2018.
Since people with MS face mobility challenges and an increase risk of falling, she walked with a cane while leaving the event.
Blair went public with her MS diagnosis in October 2018, after suffering for years with unexplained symptoms like falling, dropping things, and foggy memory.

Story of survival: Introducing, Selma Blair follows the actress following her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 2018, and subsequent chemotherapy treatments the following year
She would go on to endure two months of gruelling chemo treatments in the summer of 2019 that was followed by intense physical therapy.
Normally associated with cancer, chemotherapy can also be quite effective at killing cells that break down the nervous system, which can result in slowing down the disease of stopping it completely. But it does come with a physical cost that varies from patient to patient.
By September of 2019, the Michigan native talked about physical therapy as being ‘the beginning of my journey to healing’ and ‘the long road to getting where I want to be.’
All along the way, Blair has been giving her 2.5 million Instagram fans and followers brief updates on her condition and snippets of her life moving forward.
People can now get an up-close look at her courageous journey in the new documentary which is released on the Discovery+ streaming service on October 21st.

What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that can affect the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation or balance.
It’s a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can occasionally be mild.
In many cases, it’s possible to treat symptoms. Average life expectancy is slightly reduced for people with MS.
It’s most commonly diagnosed in people in their 20s and 30s, although it can develop at any age. It’s about 2 to 3 times more common in women than men.
MS is 1 of the most common causes of disability in younger adults.
