  1. I think that it is wonderful that Angelina was so pro active and decided to go public with her decision to get a preventive double mastectomy. What I am not a fan of is the cost to get tested for this gene in the United States and as a woman living on Long Island where we have the highest count of women affected by breast cancer I think it is horrible that something that can save lives would cost so much. I am a mother just like Angelina and I would do anything to make sure I remain healthy for my child and see them grow up.
