Angelina Jolie stunned us all when she frankly and bravely announced that she had a double mastectomy to drastically decrease her chances of breast cancer. You may recall that Christina Applegate underwent the same procedure and she is now cancer free.
Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice, as well as so many others like her, absolutely heroic. I thank our medical team for their care and focus. All I want for is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children. This is a happy day for our family.
I am so glad that she’s okay. She was looking very frail not long ago. I can’t even imagine the mental and physical ordeal of what she was going through.
Many celebrities and fans are tweeting and blogging their support and well wishes, although sadly and inevitably, there are many making insensitive comments. And they are douchebags. Let’s just be real about it — they are making f-cking stupid comments and they are total dicks. Someone even tweeted, about Jolie’s procedure:
Expensive and unnecessary! I think Angelina’s going in for a gruesome attention seeking stunt.
And in case you were wondering, not that it matters, that tweet came from a woman.
