Christina Applegate is a wonderful woman and actress. She's long been an advocate for animals, too, who have "no voice, no choice." Christina has provided a strong voice for them. She's a kind, caring woman - with extraordinary talent. Millions love Christina Applegate - the world is a better place because of her. A speedy recovery to you, Christina!

If they say it is not life threatening then it must be DCIS which is cancer within the ducts and usually had about a 100% cure rate. It is invasive cancer that is life threatening( when it breaks thru the ducts). I am glad they caught it before it became life threatening
She is in my thoughts

I actually became aware of Christina Applegate after reading about her love for animals, and all she does for them. Because of that, I make it a point to watch anything she does and her talent never disappoints. Yes, Christina is a very, very special person. She's done more for this world than most of the "celebrities" we hear about daily. The world needs more like her!

I'm so sorry to hear this. Christina, if you read this, I'm hoping that you have a speedy recovery. With the sudden loss of your friend recently, and now this, I know it must seem as if the walls are closing in. Be strong. Easier said than done, I know. Surround yourself with those who love you, and draw your strength from them. Also, take some comfort in the fact that your fans are wishing you well.

I'm really surprised that it isn't lung cancer, as she smokes like a chimney.

Dear Christina,

I am so sorry about your terrible news.
I guess I can say that I know how you feel. As a breast cancer survivor in remission who had been through surgery, chemotherapy , radiation and endless treatments, I wish you all the best with my whole heart.
You will be okay, sweetheart.

Tender hugs,
N. from Fort Lauderdale.

Christina has always been so supportive of her mother, Nancy Priddy who is a breast cancer survivor. I'm certain that Christina has taken all the necessary precautions to screen for early detection having watched her mother's struggles with breast cancer, and that's why she will beat this hideous disease. God Bless you Christina and my prayers are with you.

interesting thing about " cancer ";

it's a known fact that women are emotional beings and they
harbor resentment and " hold " it within certain parts of their beings.

when a woman harbors deep rooted hatred towards their partners, ( but yet STILL
provide their partner with sex under protest ) it manifest itself within the pelvis.

in this case, whenever a woman " holds " something within the
chest region, it usually because she's pushing down something that's
" eating " at her that she just can't ( or won't ) get off her chest.

we can almost be certain she KNOWS far more about the death
and drug abuse of her lover that's she NOT coming clean with......
