This isn’t sure the best of time for Hollywood actress and mother of six, Angelina Jolie. The actress revealed that she’ll be undergoing another cancer surgery as a preventive measure against the spread of cancer.
She had both breasts removed last year after tests showed she carried a gene which increased her chances of contracting both breast and ovarian cancer. She told Entertainment Weekly the new operation is to prevent ovarian cancer
“Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. It makes me to feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wandering about their children. There is still another surgery to have which I haven’t yet. I would get advice from all these people whom I have been talking to, to get through that next stage. ” She said
Angelina’s mum, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian and breast cancer at the age of 56 in 2007.
