Individual Healthcare and Ownership

15 May

Many of you already know that Angelia Jolie had a double mastectomy as a preventative measure against breast cancer.  She carried a gene that calculated a 87% chance of developing breast cancer in her life. I commend her bravery and resounding principles for her decision.

She took ownership of her healthcare in a PROACTIVE and PREVENTATIVE way.  She made an educated decision based on be informed and educated utilizing today’s technology in science and healthcare to head off an almost certain disaster.

I cannot imagine what she has gone thru in so many ways but she exemplifies what we as a society must do – we must be proactive and take ownership of our health.
