We'll let that sink in for a moment, because that would be devastating for someone who has made their life all about singing. She's best known for songs You're No Good and When Will I Be Loved, and she just revealed her diagnosis and battle with Parkinson's to AARP.
She was having problems with her voice when she sought the medical advice but now, this is what she said:
We can NOT believe that intolerance like this exists, and this whole story makes us so sad and sick to our stomachs! We can't believe there are people out there willing to assert themselves as such uncaring and unsympathetic human beings!
Here's what happened! We spotted a tweet from adorable musicians Lennon and Maisy (proof of how adorable they are HERE) it said this:
“A close family friend has an autistic boy and this was an anonymous letter slipped under her door. This is real.”
That's right, mother****ers! Samuel L. Jackson has had ENOUGH of men not speaking out about health issues, so he's going to change it!
Specifically, he's the new face of the One For The Boys drive, which urges men to visit their doctor on a more regular basis — leading to earlier cancer diagnosis rates! Sam has always been about charity, and now he's knee-deep!
There's no question that Angelina Jolie showed TONS of courage when she announced her decision to have preventative, and the more we look at her family's history with cancer the more it makes sense that she would take such extreme measures.
The actress knew for two reasons that she was at a high risk of being diagnosed with cancer. The first was she had a BRCA1 gene mutation, which greatly increases the chances of getting the disease. The second reason was that it runs in her family.
