Sad news: Annette Funicello died

Postby flora68 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:45 am

After decades of living with Progressive MS, former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello passed away today. ABC News released a statement from the Walt Disney Company, saying that that "She died peacefully at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., of complications from multiple sclerosis".

Her first symptoms started around 1987. I don't know much about what treatments she tried, but I'm guessing probably ALL of them. Anyway, I know she fought the good fight. She was 70.
