(Newser) – After being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy 3 weeks ago, Christina Applegate says she's "absolutely 100% clear and clean," ABC News reports. The 36-year-old Samantha Who? star, whose mom also survived breast cancer, says opting for the surgery “seemed the most logical and the one that was going to work for me."

“I'm clear," Applegate said. "Absolutely 100% clear and clean. It did not spread—they got everything out, so I'm definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”
