Christina Applegate to launch cancer charity

Posted on: July 27, 2010

American actress and cancer survivor Christina Applegate is set to launch a charity to help at-risk women who are unable get preventative care.

The ”Anchorman” star will launch Right Action For Women in September this year and hopes the project will help women in getting any cancer detected early.

“It”s a programme giving financial aid to high-risk women who can”t afford to get MRIs, which is how I found my cancer,” the Daily Express quoted Applegate as saying.

“It”s unfortunate that insurance companies (in America) don”t cover the cost of that. It”s such an incredible device because you can find it at an early detection stage.

“We started our pilot programme and started helping women already, even though we aren”t launched.

“The other aspect of the programme is to do genetic counselling and help women understand what being high-risk means, and understanding what foods are good for their bloods and how to prevent this disease from happening. That has been my mission,” she said.

Applegate recently announced she is expecting her first child and has new films coming out too.
