I have a lot to say about her decision.
And I have a lot to say about how HER choice affects my choice.
As I told someone today, “I’m very uncomfortable.” And I was a bit so before this news came out. [Ironically, last week my oncologist asked me where I was on the prophylactic bilateral mastectomy. I told her I wasn’t “there” yet.] Now? I’m much more uncomfortable.
I want everyone to know that BRCA is not the only genetic mutation.
There are others.
I know, because I happen to have one.
We deserve to have our voice heard, too.
I commend Angelina for this proactive choice. And while I wish I could talk to her about her thoughts that led her to this point, I sure would LOVE to pick her brain about my situation.
To be continued…
