After just 3 weeks of being diagnosed with breast cancer, 36-year-old Christina Applegate is happy to report that she is cancer free, thanks to an operation in which she removed both her breasts. On Good Morning America, Christina Applegate told Robin Roberts that she is free and clear of cancer.
Christina Applegate only had cancer in one breast but wanted to remove them both (the procedure is called a prophylactic double mastectomy) rather than have to go through the ongoing process of getting tested every 4 months for the next 5 years.
Christina Applegate also admits that she will definitely be having reconstructive breast surgery over the next 8 months and plans to have "have cute boobs till I'm 90."
