It's one thing to do something for yourself and your own health — and it's another to do something for yourself, your own health, AND you get praise from the mother-in-law (not quite an official term yet!) to do it!
Jane Pitt, Brad Pitt's mother, is extremely proud of Angelina Jolie for making the very difficult decision to get a double mastectomy!
Here's what she said:
"We're so very proud of Angie. This means so much to our family especially our grandchildren. We love her dearly."
Angelina's brother, James, is likewise proud of his sister!
Here's what he said:
"Like our mother [Marcheline Bertrand, who lost her battle to ovarian cancer in 2007] always put her children first, I am so grateful to be her brother."
We are truly inspired by the decision Angelina made. In the entertainment industry, an actress's body (sadly) seems to trump almost anything. This didn't hold her back from taking care of herself first and foremost!
Now, we hope others are inspired to do what they can to lower their own risks!!
