Doing What's Best For Her
I had the privilege of seeing Christina Applegate on the Broadway stage a few years back. She was playing the lead role in a musical comedy and we had second row seats. She surprised me because she was so charming and talented. She could sing and dance and she was just so delightful to watch. Of course, Christina is best known for her role as one of the Bundy's, Fox's break out situation comedy, but she can be seen most recently in her Emmy-nominated role in "Samantha Who?". However, Christina has been in the news recently, not for her talent, but for the disturbing news that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Christina recently went on the record on "Good Morning America" to talk candidly about her diagnosis and inform her fans that she opted to have a radical mastectomy on both her breasts as a preventative measure, albeit a drastic one. She went on to say that she tested positive for the gene that causes both breast and ovarian cancer and that her own mother had suffered with breast cancer at a young age. Looking forward to the future, Christina will have reconstructive surgery and looks forward to a long and productive life and having the cutest boobs in the nursing home. Women like Christina Applegate who are open and honest about their challenges give hope and courage to so many who are also facing the very same challenges.
