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.
