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!

Our technology is state of the art – that and God’s love and guidance will bring her to safe harbor.

No need to be afraid of the dark. God Bless !

So sad to hear this, be strong Christina, may God be with you

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!

my prayers are with her and her family at this time.

Good luck Christina.

I met her a couple years ago after a Sweet CHarity performance and she waited until everyone had everything signed and was very chatty and sweet. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

Oh no! Get well better, Christina! This hasn’t been her year, has it? Poor woman!

13 – Couldn’t agree with you more. Quite frankly, I’m sick of these ‘first’ posts and especially on a topic like this, all they seem to care about is being first.

my thoughts are with you Christina,hopefully you will conquer this.

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.

i really like her .hope that every thing turns out all for prayers and love goes out to at this time. good luck.

Get well soon!

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?

Christina, stay strong & get well soon!

poor thing, God be with christina

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.

thoughts are with Christina and her family. hope she gets well soon and manages to overcome this completely.

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.

We’ll pray for you Christina!. Get well! . We love you!.

Oh my goodness, this is so sad. I love her. Thank goodness she caught it early. I believe her mom had breast cancer as well. This just goes to show that women really should get breast exams done regularly.

My prayers are with her.

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.

hope all goes well.

Christina is a lovely person! My prayers are with her and I wish her a speedy and full recovery!
