When Shemar Moore's mother, Marilyn, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, the Criminal Minds actor told himself she just needed to take it easy.
"I went through the whole denial thing for a couple of years," the actor, 45, tells PEOPLE of learning of his mother's diagnosis in 1999. "I was like, 'Take a couple aspirin and go to sleep...You'll be fine. You'll be fine. Go get a massage and slow down.' "
But after some time passed, Moore began to realize just how much the debilitating disease was affecting his mother – but also what he could do to help her.
