Actress Christina Applegate has reportedly been diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.
From the Boston Globe — Ame Van Iden, the 36-year-old Applegate's publicist, released this statement:
"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."
Most recently Christina can be seen on her sitcom ABC's Samantha Who?, which she has earned a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination for her role.
Applegate began her career as Kelly Bundy on Married … with Children on the Fox network in 1987. On the raunchy comedy, that lasted 11 seasons, she played a sexy, yet ditzy teenager.
In 2003 she played a guest role as Jennifer Aniston's sister on Friends, where Applegate won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Read about Christina Applegate at Wikipedia.
Applegate is among the celebrities scheduled to appear on the Stand Up To Cancer a television special to be aired simultaneously on ABC, CBS and NBC on September 5, 2008 to raise funds for cancer research.
I am, as well as many others, sending good thoughts and well wishes to you Christina.
