Earlier today, we told you of how Angelina Jolie revealed her double mastectomy and the bravery that it took for her to share her story with the world. Her fiance, Brad Pitt, is now opening up about Angelina’s decision to share her struggle with the world.
She revealed that she underwent the double mastectomy in order to prevent possible breast and/or ovarian cancer after she learned that she was high risk. In a new interview, Brad said, “Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie’s choice 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.”
Angelina made a trip to the Congo alongside British politician William Hague, despite having undergone surgery. He said, “This is a brave choice by a remarkable woman. The courage it must have taken not only to go through this treatment but then to speak about it to help other women is truly inspiring. Throughout it all her humanitarian work has not missed a beat. This is a courageous decision by one of the bravest people I know. I wish her and her family the very best.”
