Taking inspiration from Angelina Jolie, CNN's Zoraida Sambolin spoke up and announced that she too needed a mastectomy, and that she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer!
Here's what she originally 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."
Now, after having had her mastectomy, we're getting a CNN update from Zoraida herself!
This is so fab — it sounds like she's really doing well, taking it all day-by-day! We can't even imagine having to go through this, but she's being such a badass about it!
Can't a soon-to-be-dad sit down and relax a little bit, even as a Prince??
Prince William is ALL ABOUT his duties — and he's just picked up another great one! He's joining the support for Amateur Swimming Association's vision that every child has the right to learn to swim! Not only is it a health issue, but it's a safety issue as well!
Apparently more than half of children between the ages of 7 and 11 cannot swim 25 meters unaided, which means over a million young people who are potentially not safe in and around water. That's unacceptable!
You knew that Parks And Recreation's Rashida Jones's dad was the legendary Quincy Jones, right??
If not, well, that sucks! We're sorry you were in the dark for so long! LOLz!
The duo are teaming up for some major good! They'll be together in a new campaign for Stand Up to Cancer and America's Prostate Cancer Foundation (Pcf)!
Here's what Rashida had to say:
"We have to protect the men we cherish, so please talk to your fathers, your grandfathers, husbands, brothers and sons and make sure they speak to their doctors about this disease and how to reduce their risk."
And Quincy says:
"As a father, I cherish the special moments in life and understand how they can fly by in an instant. Prostate cancer has affected dear friends and family of mine, so I am honoured to be part of this campaign with Stand Up To Cancer and the Prostate Cancer Foundation to reinforce how incredibly important it is for men to talk to their doctors about prostate cancer."
The campaign starts mid-way through next month! So freaking fab!
What an amazing cause, and what a great thing for a family to do together!
This is another HUGE step forward for the world of sports!!!
Just weeks after Jason Collins came out as the first openly gay male athlete in a major US sport, sophomore forward Jallen Messersmith has followed suit to become the first, active gay player in men's college basketball!
The shot blocker out of Benedictine College said he had kept his secret under wraps for years when he finally decided to share the news with the world:
