Christina Applegate Got Rid of the Cancer
www.enews20.com ^ | 08/19/2008 | By Raymond Fitzmyer

Posted on 08/19/2008 12:45:02 PM PDT by Red Badger

The 36-year-old actress was born in Hollywood, California. Robert Applegate, her father, was a record producer and record company producer executive, and Nancy Lee Priddy, her mother, was a singer. She also had to fight both breast and cervical cancer.

Christina Applegate will always remain in the audience’s memory as Kelly Bundy in the sitcom “Married with Children.” The actress made a great film and television career until her 36 years.

Christina Applegate had major roles in several pictures, as “Farce of the Penguins,” “Anchorman,” “The sweetest thing” and is the lead character in the ABC sitcom “Samantha Who?,” Samantha Newly.

She has been diagnosed during a regular MRI and her cancer diagnosis was reported by the Hollywood gossip TV show Extra. Still, she now announces that she is free of cancer after she had followed the rigorous treatment.

“I’m clear, Good Morning America,” the actress said in an interview on Tuesday. "Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread. They got everything out, so I'm definitely not going to die from breast cancer," the “Married with Children” star announced.

The actress is now scheduled to appear in the TV-special “Stand up Cancer” which will air on ABC, CBS and NBC beginning September 5. The goal of the show will be to raise money for cancer research.

I didn’t even know she had it. I hope she is indeed free of it.

Whoa, Bundy!

An article I read elsewhere says that she had a double mastectomy, although the cancer was only detected in one breast.

She’s 36 now? Man am I feeling old. Wishing her well. I’m sure other women going though the same will look to her for inspiration.

Yep, she had a double mastectomy. Apparently it was the only logical decision. Pretty tough...I wish her well.

You are correct, although I did not name the source that must not be named. :-)

Her mother reportedly had breast cancer as well, and Christina says that she tested positive for a gene mutation linked to breast and ovarian cancer. So, she apparently decided to not take any chances.

Damm.

A wise, but very difficult, choice.

I have no idea how you came to that conclusion...

"She has been diagnosed during a regular MRI and her cancer diagnosis was reported by the Hollywood gossip TV show Extra. Still, she now announces that she is free of cancer after she had followed the rigorous treatment."

The first three paragraphs look like they’re from a pre-written obit. Notice how it’s all “she was” and “will be remembered”? I honestly thought she was dead by the end of paragraph two and thought that made the headline pretty weird, dead’s not really the preferred way to “get rid of” cancer.

Reminds me of Ann Jillian, another beautiful actress who was known for and (if I may put it this way) used her *assets* but when cancer struck, she had the double-mastectomy. Here's to Christina, a talented lady regardless her bod, being around a good, long time, a bunch of roles that we can cheer her on.

Same with my wife. I would bet she'll also have her ovaries taken as well. No need to wait for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

I just hope that tough decision of hers brings her a healthy life. Prayers out to her. I had seen a show where women who decide to do it go and have their chests tattooed with some beautiful artwork.

There’s a great line from Anchorman, but under the circumstances I can’t say it.

Perhaps this is an indication that certain ‘things’ should be kept under wraps and not flaunted?

I understand the reconstructions are quite good. This had to be tough to face but better than the alternative.

She’s a beautiful woman no matter what.

I thought she had passed as well although I wasn’t sure if the writer was referring to Christina or her mother. Yes, I agree it looked like a pre-obit. The article is very poorly written.

My Grandmother had a mastectomy last year...she was 84 years old at the time. Are you suggesting that my Grandmother also should have kept “things” under wraps? Your statement is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve read in a long time.

...and then there’s the line “The actress made a great film and television career until her 36 years.” Definitely passing through an online translation engine.

I have had two friends die of breast cancer, one of them very young. Neither one exposed her certain “things”.

She’s a very decent comedienne. I’m more likely to watch a movie if she’s in it.

Absolutely. I was a big fan of Married With Children. Hopefully she'll recover and do well. And hopefully there will be some effective cure for all forms of cancer in the not too distant future.

My wife died of breast cancer at 28. I firmly believe some decisions she made contributed to her disease.

EPU, thanks for your sympathetic words of comfort - always appreciated.

Re: her decisions, it's so personal I just cannot speak about it. However, I would strongly urge that a Christian lifstyle would never hurt.

A beautiful woman, who appears to be a decent individual from people I know who have met her on the job. The choice she's made is one of the hardest "easy" decisions I can imagine. I pray for women who have to make the choice ahead of time, as well as those already in the fight for life.

I hate cancer. As an aside, I'm planning to join the FR folding team, which is helping researchers by using your computer during idle moments. More info here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2063306/posts
