Of course I’m speaking of Angelina Jolie.
The former Hollywood wild child is on her grown woman status.
The 37 year old mother of 6 has revealed she underwent a double mastectomy in February.
After genetic testing, she learned that she carries the BRCA1 gene thus having an estimated 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer.
She took preventative measures.
Her mother died from cancer at age 56.
Angie says she remembers her battle well, “She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was.”
The mommy of 6 said the proactive mastectomy was for the sake of her children and Boo of 8 years, Brad Pitt.
“I can tell my children that they don’t need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer,” she said.
I’d say that makes her 10x more BADASS than Laura Croft.
Kudos to Jolie for her bravery. She’s telling her story in hopes of inspiring other women.
Angie, you’re inspiring a Nation.
Truly one of the most beautiful women in the world and a bonafide HOT MAMA.
