We wrote an article not to long ago about Angelina Jolie and how she is my new favorite actress. Not because she is an amazing star that the world has come to love because of her films, but because her choice to undergo a double mastectomy as a preventative measure to ward off breast cancer represents a stance for rationalism and not superficiality.
If you read the essay written by Jolie in the New York Times, you will earn that she has a rare gene disorder known as BRCa1, which makes breast and ovarian cancer an almost certainty. After undergoing a double mastectomy, Jolie has also planned to begin a procedure to surgically remove her ovaries as a preventative measure against cancer.
Brad Pitt has let his support be known for the brave actress when he stated “Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus.” It would seem that the powerful couple is as strong as ever and looking forward to a future of many happy and healthy years.
