Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy


A WOMAN’S breasts have always been regarded very precious, a symbol of femininity, sexiness, sensuality, and during the child-bearing age, the wonderful breasts of a mother have yet to be equaled, even with today’s great advances in science and technology, in their ability to naturally produce, not only life sustaining milk for the baby, but one that contains vital ingredients to nurture, protect and bolster the immune system of the child. More often than not, our society in general perceives a woman’s breasts to be an important part of her total aesthetic appeal, especially to men. Some women even feel they are defined by their breasts. All this, and more, makes it very tough for a woman to accept the mutilation or loss of a breast (mastectomy), even for cancer. Worse, losing both breasts, with no pathology, no actual disease in either of them, can be a devastating catastrophe.
