“I learned how to do this when I was about six, and then, for some reason, every time I get a ribbon in my hand, I start making these roses, and something I did in the hospital was make hundreds of these roses. Then I taught everyone who would come to visit me how to make them…Anytime you would come into my room there would be, like, six people in there making these roses.”
Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year and spent considerable time in the hospital while recovering from a mastectomy. Now, Christina will donate her homemade crafts to a charity auction for RightActionForWomen.org – an organization dedicated to raising funds for women suffering with breast cancer.
