Christina Applegate Co-designs Jewelry To Fight Cancer


Christina Applegate is known for her humor and talent on the big screen. But in 2008, Applegate announced she had breast cancer and ever since has been an advocate for breast cancer awareness. 

The pregnant actress has teamed up with jewelry designer Alex Woo to create a necklace to raise money for Applegate’s foundation, Right Action for Women. People Magazine reports,

“I am so grateful to Alex for creating such a beautiful piece to benefit Right Action for Women. Proceeds from the necklace will help women at high risk for breast cancer get the screenings and testing the need to beat the disease.This piece reminds me so much of the roses i made out of ribbons for my friends and family while in the hospital.” 

The meaning of the tree and branches represents balance, peace, harmony, and the curves of a woman. The seven leaves represent each day of the week. 

The launch of the necklace is just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness month in October. For more information on the necklace visit
