Angelina Jolie apparently carries the BRCA1 gene that predisposes her to a 87% chance that she will get breast cancer. Instead of just sitting and wishing that luck is on her side, she chooses to have a double mastectomy. She had a hard time when lost her mother to breast cancer a few years back. Angelina, mother of 6, is such a brave woman!
By maknig a smart yet brave decision to undergo surgery, Angelina has inspired women around the world who also have the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene to choose preventive mastectomy. Breasts are beautiful, but without them, doesn’t make you any bit less feminine.
I admire someone with such courage and beauty and heart. She is thankful to Brad Pitt for being supportive of her decision. What a wonderful woman! Angie has all my respect!!
