Angelina Jolie's bravery in sharing her story about double mastectomy is truly inspiring all walks of life!

After reading Angie's bold op-ed exposing her fight to prevent breast cancer, CNN's Early Start host Zoraida Sambolin has gone public about her own struggle with breast cancer and plans for a double mastectomy on the national morning show.

Zoraida announced:

"For a while I have been struggling because I was diagnosed with breast cancer about three weeks ago and I was trying to figure out how do I share this story, how do I tell the viewers that I'm going to be gone for a while, because I have chosen to have a double mastectomy. Angelina Jolie's story really hit home."

WOW.

While the talk show host hasn't been tested for the BRCA1 gene like Angie, she already has plans to have the test in order to encourage more to take control of their health!

After such an immediate positive reaction, we're hopeful the Hollywood heavyweight's fearlessness will save MANY lives.

It's no wonder you can't say "Angelina" without "angel!" LOLz!!!

Ch-ch-check out the TV journalist explain her decision to undergo the surgery (below)!!

    Kudos to them, but keep in mind MOST PEOPLE do not have the money or the opportunity to find out their options like the WEALTHY DO. Therein lies the REAL PROBLEM. Heroic would be more making sure everyone has the same opportunities to protect their health.

    I live in London and my relative who is 22 years old was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with breast cancer. She has made the courageous decision to have a double mastectomy, and is going through the necessary tests now, CAT scan, genetic counseling, MRI scan, freezing eggs and the possibility it could be Li-Fraumeni syndrome? Our local hospital and the team around her have been brilliant and reassured the family. Our hearts break for her and she will lose her hair as soon as the chemotherapy starts, but what is the alternative? We
    are so grateful that Angelina Jolie has spoken out about her experience and will inspire
    so many young women who have been diagnosed with cancer. She is so full of compassion
    And has empowered women around the world in many ways. A beautiful soul as well as a beautiful face. Brad and your children are blessed to have you in their lives. Dum Spiro Spero- While I breathe, I hope.

    "Inspiring" is being overused and incorrectly used. More like "A stupid celebrity made an announcement therefore creating a bandwagon everyone can hop on for attention"
