My upmost respect and admiration for Angelina Jolie for her courage and grace in announcing her decision to have a double mastectomy. As an elective surgery that probably saved her and her family and friends much grief and sadness had she waited and was diagnosed with cancer, and probably extended her life by many many years, she is to be admired and commended for taking such a proactive role in her health. For announcing it and showing that health, family and friends are much more important than public image and body image not enough can be said. I wish her many years of health and life.
Blessings to her and all who have made such a decision, for those who wish they had had that decision to make, and for all those who lost the battle with cancer.
