Thoughtful Thursday – A Prayer for Christina

Copyright DRG Used under Fair Use ProvisionsI was sad to hear of Christina Applegate’s cancer news and that she had opted to undergo a double mastectomy at the age of 36. She’s cancer free now, but let’s say a prayer that she heals quickly and stays healthy!

Most everyone may remember Christina as Kelly Bundy, but I came to really respect her when she took the lead role in SWEET CHARITY. Christina broke an ankle during the Boston run, I believe, and then when it looked like the show was going to close, Christina stepped up to the plate to keep the show going.

Since “Charity” is my nickname, we went to see her in the show and she was great. We really really loved the show and so did others since Christina was nominated for a 2005 Emmy for her role. More recently, Christina was nominated for a Golden Globe for the ABC show “Samantha Who?”.

Here’s the promo for SWEET CHARITY featuring Christina!

  1. i remember her from the bundys, and that movei, the kids watched over and over, babysitter died
    sorry my mind is a blank,

    but my kids love the new samatha who?

    i feel for her.

    cancer or boobs, the boobs goooooooo

    of course im sitting here 40 and never went to have a check up for many yrs

  2. Bless her heart, that was a terribly difficult decision to make! I’ve had 3 biopsies with the last two years ago at M.D. Anderson in our Medical Center. Blessedly, they have all been benign! I keep telling the doctors that they are
    just cystic fibroids, but they won’t listen. It’s one of those damned if you do or if you don’t situations, they can’t take
    the chance! We’ll keep Christina in our
    prayers and thoughts.

  3. I will definitely keep Christina in my prayers. I went through a scare like that last month but thank God my tumor was benign. I think I would probably have done the same as Christina had mine been cancer. Of course, she is a lot younger than me so that makes her decision easier to make than mine. I can’t imagine having to go through that pain twice. She was lucky to catch it early so she doesn’t have to go through chemo. God bless. Have a great day and hugs to all.
