Applegate's mother is a breast cancer survivor. "The first time she was diagnosed I was a very young girl probably 7. I'm not sure it really fully hit me at the time, but she had to undergo surgery and have a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery," Applegate, 36, told USA Today in 2003.
"It was devastating for my mother to lose one of her breasts and have to go through all that," Applegate said. "It is a very personal cancer for the women it affects. This is about women's womanhood. It's one of the aspects of our femininity."
Applegate is scheduled to appear on September 5, alongside stars including Meryl Streep, Jennifer Aniston Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron, and Sally Field at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon.
