We're so proud of all the brave celebs who've shared their experiences with cancer!
In light of Angelina Jolie's revelation that she had her ovaries removed after a cancer scare, Kelly Osbourne decided to share that she too has the cancer gene, just like the award-winning actress.

The TV personality revealed:
"I actually do have the cancer gene. My mom made all of us get tested after she found out that she had it and got her double mastectomy."
If y'all don't remember, Kelly's momma, Sharon Osbourne, survived colon cancer (which had spread to her lymph nodes) back in 2002 against a 33% survival rate prognosis. Obviously, the subject of cancer is a sensitive topic for Kelly.
Listen to what the 27-year-old had to say about her plans for treatment (below)!
Regardless of where you stand on the issue, we think the reality star is handling the situation with a great deal of maturity and grace.
Props to Angelina and Kelly for bringing more awareness to this difficult topic!
