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!

    That’s sad. I wish her all the best in what will undoubtedly be a hard time. Im glad that they caught it early. Hopefully everything will work out fine for her. And I know this is a bad thing to say at this point but I hope it won’t affect the fate of Samantha Who too much.

    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!

    Get better soon, Christina!
