Annette Funicello's successful career, which spans the show business spectrum from television to film to records.
She readily admits that her debut on the original "Mickey Mouse Club" was fateful:
"I owe everything to those ears," she confesses.
Annette's life took a more serious turn in 1992, when she publicly disclosed that she has been battling multiple sclerosis, a crippling disease of the central nervous system. With no intention of altering her lifestyle, Annette explained, "I think you only have two choices in this kind of situation. Either you give in to it or you fight it. I intend to fight."
