Jolie admitted the shocking news in a story she penned in the New York Times.

“My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman,” Jolie wrote. “Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.”

 
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.. Stay strong.
