There is a silver lining, if there can be one in this situation. Christina's spokeswoman is saying, "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. No further statement will be issued at this time."
The ironic part is that Applegate was also announced as one of the many stars set to be involved in Stand Up to Cancer telethon scheduled for September 8th of this year. Let's all wish her the best of luck.
