Right Action For Women is hoped to help at-risk women who can't afford the proper preventative care.


Cancer survivor Christina Applegate is launching a charity to help at-risk women who can't afford the proper preventative care. The Anchorman star will launch Right Action For Women in September this year and hopes the project will aid women get any cancer detected early.

She tells WENN, "It's a program giving financial aid to high-risk women who can't afford to get MRIs, which is how I found my cancer. It's unfortunate that insurance companies (in America) don't cover the cost of that. It's such an incredible device because you can find it at an early detection stage. We started our pilot program and started helping women already, even though we aren't launched."

"The other aspect of the programme is to do genetic counselling and help women understand what being high-risk means, and understanding what foods are good for their bloods and how to prevent this disease from happening. That has been my mission."

It's a happy time for Applegate - as well as launching the new charity drive, she also has new films coming out and recently announced she is expecting her first child.
