Kathy Bates asked Christina Applegate for cancer advice
The actress sought help from the former cancer sufferer before having her double mastectomy operation.
Veteran actress Kathy Bates asked Christina Applegate for advice before she underwear a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Misery star turned to Applegate, who underwent the operation in 2008 after being diagnosed with the same illness, to help her make up her mind how to proceed following the revelation. Bates had previously fought ovarian cancer back in 2003 and she needed help from someone who had undergone the same procedure themselves.
A source told the National Enquirer, “The two have been friends for years, and Kathy was especially supportive of Christina during the days of her health crisis… Christina’s example was a lifesaver for Kathy.”
64-year-old Kathy made her cancer battle public earlier in the month in an interview with US Magazine.
