Last year we learned the shocking and very sad news that actress Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer and, because of early detection, was able to become “100% cancer free” after making the difficult decision to undergo a double mastectomy to rid her body completely of the disease. This week, tho, new photos have surfaced of Applegate smoking a cigarette just months after successfully enduring her first cancer scare … which makes absolutely NO SENSE to me at all:
Why IN THE WORLD would anyone who has endured something as life-changing as a double mastectomy in order to rid their body of breast cancer want to tempt fate by smoking cigarettes and risk getting throat cancer? It just seems extremely dangerous and foolhardy to take up a smoking habit in the wake of a successful defeat of cancer. Obvs, it is her life and she is free to do as she pleases but I can’t help but wonder what it may feel like should she ever find out that she is sick again. Why take the chance? I’m really dumbfounded … but I do wish her well and continued health.
