Angelina Jolie Makes Brave Decision To Reveal All About Her Surgery To Reduce Breast Cancer Risk

Angelina Jolie has now gone public after she faced the difficult decision to have her breasts surgically removed after discovering one of her genes had developed a fault that has been linked to breast cancer.

It must be very difficult for a person to decide to have a mastectomy (the removal of one or both breasts surgically) after discovering that they have a faulty gene which could lead to breast cancer. It is important for people not to feel alone when faced with a decision like this.
I think that surgery has been a positive decision for Angelina and her family and she will break down barriers by having put her health before vanity when it came to making the tough decision she faced having permanent imperfections on her body as a result of her undertaking surgery, rather than risk developing breast cancer.

I, for one, salute Angelina for doing this and I am very pleased that she decided to go public with this story.
