Christina Applegate Is Fighting Breast Cancer

Christina Applegate Is Fighting Breast Cancer

Christina Applegate has been diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer, a rep for the actress confirms.

The 36-year-old Samantha Who? actress released a statement via her spokesperson: “Christina Applegate was diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer. Benefiting from early detection through a doctor ordered MRI, the cancer is not life threatening. Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery. No further statement will be issued at this time.”

This is just one month after her photographer ex-boyfriend Lee Grivas was found dead in his Hollywood apartment — the victim of drug overdose.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you, Christina!

    so sad! the scary thing is she is only 36, and it is recommended to begin getting mamograms at 40. What if this would have gone 4 years untreated! Clearly God is on her side, and she will be fine. I think this should be a wakeup call thats its NEVER to early to examine for things like this…

    hopefully all will go well with Christina. As for the ex boyfriend being a ‘victim of a drug overdose’ that’s a laugh. Seems to me that the only people that die of drug overdoses are those that are drug users. Of course you have your accidential overdoses that were a result of a mistake of someone in the medical profession, but from the sounds of this writing, he was a victim of himself.

    I don’t know anyone that has died from a drug overdose that wasn’t a drug user.

    Seems like it’s been diagnosed pretty early on so that’s good!
    Obviously all forms of cancer are severe but breast cancer discovered early can be cured with chemo.

    Prayers to Christina!

    I remember watching an E THS about Married With Children and I’m pretty sure that they mentioned that Christina’s mom battled breast cancer during the run of the show. So there is no doubt that the possibility never left Christina’s mind.

    Good for her for staying on top of her health and I wish her the best throughout this crisis.

    Get well soon, Christina.

    Christina’s situation shows how important it is to get tested regularly. Early detection is the key. And actually, breast exams are part of my yearly ob/gyn visits, and I’m younger than Christina. So doctors are looking out for signs of breast cancer even prior to 40. But I guess mammograms for ALL women (not just those 40+) are too cost-prohibitive. But we can all do self-exams and be pro-active.

    PS: How silly can you be Heather xx?

    me Says:

    Thank God she had a mammogram. She probably did because her mom had breast cancer. Just to be on the safe side, I started having them at 32.

    God Bless you Christina. It sounds like you will be just fine but we’ll pray for you because the word “cancer” is enough to scare anyone. You must be scared even though the doctor’s say this is not life-threatening.

    the scary thing is she is only 36, and it is recommended to begin getting mamograms at 40.

    I don’t know of any doctor who still recommends that you begin getting mammograms that late. Most doctors will advise you to start getting mammograms in your 30′s, and even earlier if you have a history of breast cancer in your family.

    Wishing Christina a swift and complete recovery.

    48th!!!!!!!!!!!!! It just shows you that breast cancer does not know age or people. I love Christina and pray for her. She has been a favorite of mine since ” MARRIED WITH CHILDREN” was on the air. I don’t think there is an episode I have missed, plus all her other sitcom’s. She is such a funny actress. But, never the funniest, as Kelly Bundy. I wish her all the best, and know she will follow the Dr.’s orders and get well quick. May God bless you Christina and all the others going through this horrible ordeal.

    As soon as a woman has period, she shall check her breast regularly every month. If she finds something which is not normal, or doesn’t belong there, then she shall go and see a doctor for sure!
