Oscar-Winning Actress Angelina Jolie is not shy about sharing her brave story about getting a preventative double mastectomy with her fans. In 2013, Jolie made the decision to go under the knife for surgery due to a very high risk of breast cancer. She wants nothing more than to stay healthy. That is a mission that is far from over. Jolie tells Entertainment Weekly, "There's still another surgery to have, which I haven't yet," the Maleficent actress explained. "I'll, you know, I'll get advice from all these wonderful people who've I've been talking to, to get through the next stage." In addition to breast cancer, Jolie has also a 50% chance of developing ovarian cancer. Something her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died from at the age of 56. Despite needing more surgery, Jolie is blessed to receive mail from fans who relate to what she has been going though.  She is also very happy with her decision to go through with the surgery back in 2013. "I'm great!...I'm very happy I made the decision," she said. "I was very fortunate to have great doctors and very, very fortunate to have a good recovery and have a project like Unbroken to have something to be really focused on, to be getting healthy for, and to be able to just get right back to work." Jolie has stated that she feels very close to other women who are going through the same thing as she is. “Wherever I go, usually I run into women and we talk about health issues, women's issues, breast cancer, ovarian cancer. I've talked to men about their daughters' and wives' health. It makes me feel closer to other people who deal with the same things and have either lost their parents or are considering surgeries or wondering about their children...The reason that I wrote it was to try to communicate and help and connect with other women and other families going through the same thing. And...I was very, very moved by all the support and kindness from so many people." You can catch Angelina when Maleficent hits theaters in late May.
