Angelina Jolie Reveals She Had Double Mastectomy

Regardless of how you feel about her personal life, I think everyone must commend Angelina Jolie for a) having the courage to undergo such a personal procedure and b) demonstrating the fortitude to make the matter public. Hopefully, this will inspire women worldwide to consider genetic testing in order to learn to own risks of breast cancer. According to the Susan G. Komen website, there will be over 200,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer in in women for 2013, and almost 40,000 deaths will occur as well. The first step to prevention is to develop awareness!
