Filed under: Angelina JolieInspirationHealthCancer

Taking inspiration from Angelina Jolie, CNN's Zoraida Sambolin spoke up and announced that she too needed a mastectomy, and that she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer!

Here's what she originally announced:

"For a while I have been struggling because I was diagnosed with breast cancer about three weeks ago and I was trying to figure out how do I share this story, how do I tell the viewers that I'm going to be gone for a while, because I have chosen to have a double mastectomy. Angelina Jolie's story really hit home."

Now, after having had her mastectomy, we're getting a CNN update from Zoraida herself!

This is so fab — it sounds like she's really doing well, taking it all day-by-day! We can't even imagine having to go through this, but she's being such a badass about it!

Feel better soon, Zoraida!!

Christina Applegate Suffered 'Total Emotional Collapse' After Double Mastectomy

Filed under: Christina ApplegateHealthCancer

Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 because of a mutation in a gene passed down from her mother, also a breast cancer survivor.

To make sure she'd be disease free, she had a double mastectomy.

While she's come to terms with being a cancer survivor she still knows things are different, saying:

"I miss my exquisite breasts sometimes."

That's a reference to a line in her movie Anchorman! Ha!

But she did actually have a pretty tough time, dealing with something so personal so publicly.
