Angelina Jolie undergoes preventive double mastectomy
The New York Times
Angelina Jolie writes: "We often speak of 'Mommy's mommy,' and I find myself trying to explain the illness that took her away from us. (My children) have asked if the same could happen to me. I have always told them not to worry, but the truth is I carry a 'faulty' gene, BRCA1, which sharply increases my risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman."
