Christina Applegate's Cancer Battle

Christina Applegate graces the latest cover of "Us Weekly" and the headlines are pretty shocking. The "Samantha Who?" star has been diagnosed with breast cancer. No stranger to the disease, which her mom experienced when Applegate was a small child, some of her closest friends explain that she is prepared to fight it with all she's got.

According to Lance Bass, "She is doing amazing and can fight any challenge life throws at her."

Personally, I love Applegate. I thought she was hilarious in "The Sweetest Thing." I admit I haven't seen her (relatively) new show, but I have been wanting to catch it.

That is incredibly sad. I loved her in "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead." That was my first time being exposed to the fashion industry and seeing a runway show...I thought her character was soooo cool. Remember her bro, "The dishes are done, man!" ;)

Oh it's so sad to hear another girl is down with cancer. I hope she will overcome it in the end.

Word to all girls out there, take care of your health and go for regular mammograms and paps just to be on the safe side :)

"Down" with cancer makes it sound like a head cold. Besides,having met her and hung out with her I can say that she's not a victim. Her mom had it twice and recovered. She's a positive person and they caught it early because she is a pro-active gal.
She really IS that nice in person.
It's not a death sentence. I am a cancer survivor. Early detection is the best defense along with proper treatment and a positive attitude!

I second that we must all be sure to have mammograms and paps every year according to our age group.

Anonymous, thanks for the comment. I actually don't think that the commentor who used the word "down," meant anything negative ;) Some readers are from different countries and may not word things the same way as we do here in the U.S. I think we all know someone who has cancer, therefore we all know how it feels to be effected. Great tips ladies on early prevention. Thanks to all who left their thoughts!
