Christina Applegate is a truly amazing woman. A successful actress with decades of experience, she has held memorable roles on Broadway, TV and in movies, appearing in more than a dozen shows and the big screen in nearly 40 films - efforts which have earned her a Primetime Emmy, as well as Golden Globe and Tony nominations. More impressively, Christina uses her fame for good. After publicly battling breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy, she not only made a full recovery but launched Right Action For Women, an organisation which is dedicated to breast cancer screenings for women. Find out more about the foundation at the Right Action For Women website and follow Christina on Twitter @1capplegate.
