Fox News Meteorologist Janice Dean Has Words of Encouragement for Selma Blair After MS Diagnosis

Playing Fox News Meteorologist Janice Dean Was ‘Scared’ to Talk About Multiple Sclerosis

Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean is opening up about her battle with multiple sclerosis. 

“When I was diagnosed, all I could see was a wheelchair,” she said. “That's all I associated it with.” 

Actress Selma Blair recently came forward with her MS diagnosis, and Dean told Inside Edition she has advice for the star. 

“I have reached out to her via social media and I just wanna tell her I’m here. We're here. We are MS warriors, she's a warrior princess,” Dean said. “She has no idea how much awareness she's bringing.” 

In her new memoir "Mostly Sunny,” Dean also write about the day she informed her two boys about the chronic disease. It came after her sons' teacher shared her own struggle with MS.

“I realized in that moment had not told my boys what was wrong with me, they knew I had to take injections to get better,” she said. “She opened up this door for me to explain to my boys that I have the same thing as Mrs. Klein. Together we're stronger.”
