Angelina Jolie has been the talk of the town recently after she made a revelation that she has in fact had a masectomy. This was a hard decision for her but with her family’s record with breast cancer, she has a high chance to be having the same health risk if she did not had her breast removed.
Her announcement was done via the New York Times where she personally wrote an article detailing her experience. This was also done so that she can warn other people out there that there is a way to stop breast cancer from happening. Jolie wrote “My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman,”
The actress has since opened the eyes of women to this reality. Breast cancer is serious and can lead to death and if a person can stop it now, then it should be done.
