No easy decision

Shell BeachMay 17, 2013 

Thank you to an amazing woman! Angelina Jolie not only had the courage to do a double mastectomy, but is also sharing it with the world in support of breast cancer awareness.

This was no easy task. But hopefully it will help women with breast cancer to be more comfortable with decisions they make regarding this disease and the outcome of the treatment.

Many women with this disease try to ignore it and do nothing, hoping it will disappear, or they do not want to be disfigured by the surgery. Seeing a smiling, beautiful woman after she had this surgery may change many women’s decision about breast cancer.
