Christina Applegate, who is being treated for breast cancer, is scheduled to appear on a television special to raise money for cancer research next month.
A publicist for the actress says the disease was caught early, thanks to a doctor-ordered MRI and that Applegate is expected to fully recover. The special, "Stand Up To Cancer," will be aired on KAKE on September 5th.
The 36-year-old has been nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the show "Samantha Who?", in which she plays a woman who wakes from a coma with no memory of who she is. She helped establish the Fox network in 1987 with her role as Kelly Bundy on "Married ... With Children."
