Actress Christina Applegate Fighting Breast Cancer
It’s another reminder that cancer truly is indiscriminant—the young, beautiful actress Christina Applegate, best known for her role as Kelly Bundy on “Married…With Children,” received a breast cancer health diagnosis recently. Fortunately, it was detected early from an MRI her doctor ordered. Applegate, 36, is expected to make a full recovery. She’s also scheduled to appear on a one-hour television fundraiser special “Stand Up to Cancer” that will feature various celebrities, which is scheduled to air on Sept. 5.
Applegate’s experience highlights just how important early detection can be. While there are no guarantees, early detection is among the best ways to increase the odds of beating the condition. Following her doctor’s orders and treatment plan will also help Applegate in her battle.
