NEW YORK (AP) _Christina Applegate says she has a clean bill of health after undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

“I’m clear,” Applegate tells ABC News’ “Good Morning America” in an interview airing Tuesday. “Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread. They got everything out, so I’m definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”

Applegate’s interview with “GMA” was taped Monday.

The actress’ publicist, Ame Van Iden, announced earlier this month that Applegate was being treated for the disease after it was detected through a doctor-ordered MRI.

“I was so mad,” she says in the “GMA” interview when she first heard the news. “I was just shaking and — and then also immediately, I had to go into … ‘take-care-of-business-mode,’ which was … I asked them, ‘What do I do now? What — what is it that I do? I get a doctor, I get a surgeon, I get an oncologist? What do I do?'”

Applegate, 36, says she “immediately made those appointments and immediately called around for … someone to start teaching me how to live macrobiotically.” She was referring to following a healthy diet of fish, grains, beans and vegetables, and avoiding processed foods.

The actress, whose mother battled breast cancer, says she began getting mammograms at the age of 30.

Applegate is scheduled to appear on a one-hour TV special, “Stand Up to Cancer,” to be aired on ABC, CBS and NBC on Sept. 5 to raise funds for cancer research.

  1. My best wishes to Christina, it takes a lot of courage to do what you did. I am not saying anything negative about what you did,but I wish more people who have the money to go ahead and have the choose to do what you did and have re constructive surgery could do so, they should definitely make that available to women who need it.
