Brave Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie was told she had an 87% chance of developing breast cancer as she carries the “faulty” BRCA1 gene. She then made the brave decision to have a double mastectomy. She said she did it for her children as she had lost her mother through breast cancer.

    Yesterday when I first heard that story I was shocked, but the more I read I understood the actual selflessness of her act. She’s always given more if herself than most people know about and now she’s done it again in a most literal way.
    Namaste Angie.

    I was shocked too and then read and understood. I think It is important to read, enquire and not take things/people on face value. This is such a selfless act in many ways. Thank you for your comments Benjamin.
    and yes Namaste Angie..
