    Actress Angelina Jolie announced in a New York Times op-ed article on Tuesday that she underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carries the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increases her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. "My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman," Jolie wrote. "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy."
    Jolie's mother Marcheline Bertrand died of breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 56.

    Probably. I don't want to have any more kids and I want to live long enough to see my grandchildren. My balls won't do me any good if I'm dead.

    I don't find her attractive or interesting at all however I do empathize with her situation. I'm glad it all worked out for her.
