In 2008, Christina Applegate's reps confirmed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, sending the star reeling into survival mode and treatments. At the time, Applegate was starring on the hit show Samantha Who? on ABC, which has since been cancelled. Fortunately, Applegate beat her battle against cancer with a double mastectomy and is currently in remission. Applegate spoke to People, saying:
"I'm very grateful to Martyn for coming along at a time that he did because he's been my rock through all of this. He gave me something to really want live for and something to smile about."
Life is looking up for Christina Applegate, and we couldn't be happier for her! Congratulations Christina!
