Today was tough. I couldn’t get out. This was yesterday. Joy. My son hitched a ride and we had a perfect day. I so wish this @the_alinker_world game changer of a mobility aid for people who need and want and are willing to really give it a go. It keeps me going right now thinking people lives are changing for the better. I didn’t think I would be in this state of health with a young kid. I didn’t think I would ever need a cane or wheelchair or mobility aid until well into old age. But here we are. I am happy. I wish I could ride and compete and carry my son and work right now but the work on myself takes precedent. I want this aid for so many people. I am tempted to call my friends and ask? Can we give an #alinker together to someone who has an active campaign going on @the_alinker_world site ? I don’t want to be pushy. But it feels good to help. Spread the word. It’s a community that helps you live again. This walking bike is my lifeline to outside. And that is joy. Let me know. We can post together. Love, pushy blair. Who cares a lot. #alinker @the_alinker_world #changing lives while #arthursaintbleick rides on my life ?

Along with a video of her and her 7-year-old son, Arthur Saint Bleick, hitching a ride down the street, Blair wrote:

Blair continued:

The actress then wished that more people with mobility issues were able to get their hands on an Alinker, a type of walking bike.

Blair went public with her diagnosis in October 2018.

The mom wrote at the time:

 I am in the thick of it but I hope to give some hope to others. And even to myself. You can’t get help unless you ask. But I am a forthcoming person and I want my life to be full somehow. I want to play with my son again. I want to walk down the street and ride my horse. I have MS and I am ok.

Nonetheless, Blair continues to hold on to hope and continues to spread that hope to other people.
