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.
"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."
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!!!
