Angelina Jolie - Double Mastectomy

Angelina Jolie

By: Tara Lynn

According to CNN Angelina Jolie recently had a double mastectomy.  After testing positive during genetic testing for having a high risk for breast cancer, Jolie made the brave decision to have a mastectomy done.  

I hope that the insurance companies start covering more advanced medicine practices like this.  I know that it would significantly improve womens chances to live longer, healthier lives.

Jolie's public message speaks volumes of bravery.  It may make more women aware of the serious danger and risk they may be facing without even knowing.
