Applegate is cancer-free

LOS ANGELES: Just a month after being diagnosed with breast cancer, actress Christina Applegate is perfectly healthy and cancer-free, she told Robin Roberts of Good Morning America in an exclusive interview.

“I’m clear,” the star of Samantha Who? said. “Absolutely 100 per cent clear and clean. They got everything out so I’m definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”

Applegate, who started getting mammograms six years ago after she turned 30, said the cancer was found through the second of two MRI tests as a follow-up from a biopsy she had last year.

During the interview she laughs about her reaction to the initial diagnosis, but perhaps only to offset the fear she felt then.
