After the death of her mother, grandmother and aunt because of Cancer, Angelina Jolie had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer in her lifetime unless she underwent surgery.



Two years ago, Jolie had a double mastectomy, and recently a blood test revealed "a number" of elevated inflammatory markers that could be a sign of early cancer.

"I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt. I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn't live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren" Jolie stated.

Her choice was to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed although tests revealed that she is free of tumor. This preventive step greatly decrease her lifetime risk of cancer!

Jolie affirmed: "My mother's ovarian cancer was diagnosed when she was 49. I'm 39", and when asked about the surgery she added: "It is a less complex surgery than the mastectomy, but its effects are more severe. It puts a woman into forced menopause."

Jolie, who is married to actor Brad Pitt, has six children, three of whom are adopted ,said : "I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical changes. But I feel at ease with whatever will come, not because I am strong but because this is a part of life. It is nothing to be feared"



Charity Ovarian Cancer Action has praised Jolie's decision and "bravery".

We sum up with few words from Angelina: "I know my children will never have to say: "Mom died of ovarian cancer."
