Christina Applegate - breast cancer survivor


In August 2008 Christina Applegate was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. The cancer was caught early enough to not be life-threatening. Switching to a healthier diet, Applegate followed doctor lead treatment and is now in remission.

Although cancer was only found in one breast, Applegate underwent a double mastectomy as she'd inherited a genetic fault - BRCA1 mutation - which often leads to breast cancer. She is now having reconstructive surgery.
