Celebrities may be exempt from many of life's hardships, but not even the most famous person can escape the perils of cancer. Many celebs have either survived or been victims of cancer throughout the years.

For example, actress Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer in August of 2008. By August 19, 2008, Applegate was announced to be cancer free after undergoing a double mastectomy.
