    "I had MRIs and the results came back, and it all adds up to, I can't go on with the competition," Selma shared. "I've pushed as far as I could."

    She added, "With a chronic illness, you do have special considerations, and my body has taken a hit. It's way too much for the safety of my bones. I could do extensive damage that I, of course, do not want."

    "Long before @dancingwiththestars I knew you were a ten, and now the world knows. Selma I’ve never been so proud of you (and I’m often proud of you)," Sarah wrote in a touching Instagram post.

    She continued, "You make the rest of us believe that we can do anything. That we can never give up."

    "The way this @dancingwiththestars experience with @sashafarber1 and all of the cast…. Has rallied with true grit and JOY and determination has inspired me more than I can process," Selma wrote.

    She added that she now has had the "extreme elation and grace of dancing on a ballroom floor" and being lifted by not only her "loves" but also the public.
