Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
http://healthland.time.com/2013/05/14/an...st-cancer/

Gutsy move on her part. She had not been diagnosed with breast cancer but was a carrier of the BRCA gene with has a 80% prognosis of causing breast cancer in women. I applaud her decision to do so. I'm sure it was extremely difficult for her to make. It probably saved her life.

RE: Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
Now she is even cooler in my book...I actually have something in common with her now (other than an old friend that has called me Angelina for decades).

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

I don't respect actors for being actors.

This I respect though.

RE: Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
This sends an excellent message. I have encountered so many women who did not have mastectomies when diagnosed because they (and/or their partner) thought it would make them less of a woman. Christina Applegate and Angelina are beautiful women with and without their natural breasts.

Too many woman, for that reason, go for partial removal to get rid of a lump only to have it come back in the same or the other breast.

It was diagnosed on one side for me, I opted to have both removed and found out there was already cancer in both.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

RE: Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
To echo Beardys sentiment, being an actor doesn't really do much for me. But this kind of bravery I respect.







And I respect it as much in Angelina as I do in Angie!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

RE: Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
Though boobies can be considered fun, these bags can also not be fun when it comes to cancer. I probably would get the same thing done to myself if it were found out that I was a carrier of the BRCA gene.

Great preventative measures payed off for you Anj. I'm glad you decided to get both done.

Good for her to for going public about it, too. It could encourage others to help themselves, as well.

RE: Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastdectomy
I delayed responding because my Gwynnies is not too fond of Angelina, and my first reaction was that Angelina was over-reacting. But, you know this place; evidence this, citation that...





The numbers seem a little different, here; and maybe my first impression wasn't too far off the mark. now, I'm not hating on Angelina, but I do think she's a neurotic, crazy bitch. Big Grin
