Angelina Jolie had both Breasts removed!?


Wow! What a brave woman Ms. Angelina Jolie is. Recently the 37 year old actress opened up about a very private matter, having both of her breasts removed to prevent getting cancer in the future after doctors found a gene that made the probability extremely high. Ms. Jolie witnessed her mother die from breast cancer at an early age and wanted to prevent her 6 children from the same fate.

In a New York Tmes, Op-Ed she wrote: “I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made. My chances of developing breast cancer have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer.” “I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity.”

Kudos to Angelina for being so brave and transparent to speak out about this horrible cancer. I think it is every woman's nightmare, honestly speaking.
