Christina Applegate: I'm Cancer Free!

Christina Applegate is perfectly healthy and cancer-free, she tells Good Morning America.

“I’m clear,” the Samantha Who? star said just one month after being diagnosed with breast cancer. “Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. … They got everything out so I’m definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”

As for when she first heard news of the cancer, Christina shared her initial reaction: “I was so mad. I was just shaking and — and then also immediately, I had to go into … `take-care-of-business-mode,’ which was … I asked them, `What do I do now? What — what is it that I do? I get a doctor, I get a surgeon, I get an oncologist? What do I do?’”

  • Jackie

    Alright good for her.
    Now if only every other woman was as lucky

  • enlightened

    I am happy for her, but an odd comment to make, as I don’t think you can ever be certain the cancer won’t return.

  • Harriet

    How ridiculous. She is either in denial or it is pure PR spin. She can tell us in 5 or 10 years she is clear of cancer, like any other woman dignosed with breast cancer.

  • mike

    Good for her…

  • go sox

    I agree with enlightened and Harriet. Until you reach that 5 yr. cancer-free milestone, you can’t proclaim it to be true. It only takes ONE cell to break off from a tumor and travel somewhere and spread. That being said, I do think she has a great chance at cure, since it was found VERY early!! My best wishes to Christina!!

  • LyLy (france)

    yay! great news!

  • Nora

    It is good to hear that she had it caught early. But I’m with earlier folks: one month post treatment, it is too early to declare oneself cured and 100% clean. If after 5 years, there are no signs of cancer in the other breast or elsewhere in the body, then she is clear. Unless she had one of those very slow growing, self-contained tumours.

    In all cases, congratulations!

    YAY!!! All the best to you Christina!


    Nobody likes privacy anymore, or maybe is a new way of getting attention. All of those that came out letting the world know they got cancer they miraculously cured, not that is anything wrong with that.(great actually, if it were any cancer).
    Paul Newman has cancer, and I have never heard of him coming out and letting the world know about this, there are just speculations. I wish him and his family all the best.

    Hollywood is just getting sicker by day.

  • diane

    happy for her:

  • Kiwi

    To everyone above, she had a double mastecomy, that’s why she can say she is cancer free. It’s very sad. Her mom had breast cancer too. The story is on yahoo.

    Bravo, Christina!!! You’re an inspiration. You’ve also done so much for cancer awareness and the importance of early detection. You’ve played many roles in your life, but your role as a health advocate is your greatest. Your courage in discussing your illness and recovery will save lives.
