What do you think of Angelina Jolie's recent decision to have a double mastectomy?


If you are a woman and had the same test results, would you have made the same decision? If you're a man, would you want your wife/significant other to do the same?

    Wow, you certainly are active and take good care of yourself. I am sad for your prognosis. Thank you for your heartfelt comment.

    I agree with you about a cure not being found soon and how depressing that is. It's such a terrible disease.

    Congratulations on being a breast cancer survivor. From what I have read, she's already had the surgery. I don't know about her ovaries. Maybe they'll come next? I'm shocked about this and don't have an official opinion but I think she's very brave.

    I often feel that no matter what we do, cancer strikes most people eventually anyway. It's so sad.

    Yes, it would be awful if she went through this, and then developed some other form of cancer. I do think she is very brave though, first to do this and then to go public with it. Of course if she didn't, people would find out anyway.
