The things people say

Everyone is talking about Angelina Jolie and her decision to remove her ovaries due to her faulty gene.

I applaud her for going public  with it and raising awareness about the BRCA gene and ovarian cancer. She has completed her family and perhaps it was an easier decision for her as opposed to someone who doesn’t have children. But regardless of money and celeb status she is a young woman who has the same feelings and fears as the rest of us. It makes me cross when people try to insinuate that because she is rich she’s some kind of robot. 

We are all different but we are all women, affected by cancer or have this faulty gene. Comparing lifestyles doesn’t really amount to anything. If you get cancer particularly ovarian which has a low survival rate you might die and cancer doesn’t care if you have millions of pounds in the bank.
