“My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was. I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of” - My Medical Choice by Angelina Jolie, New York Times (14 May, 2013)
Mucho respect for this woman.
Never been a big fan of her but this made me want to start that slow clap that builds into everyone cheering.
I quite enjoy Angelina, so I’m excited to see what her post-cancer career will include.
I dont quite know what is happening here, but she has a cyrstal and a scary robo-hand.
And I dig that.
