Angelina Jolie has Double Mastectomy Due to Cancer Gene

Did you guys read a news about Angelina Jolie? She has undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her chanches of getting breast cancer.

As reported by The Star online today (15 May 2013):

“Jolie, one of Hollywood’s best-known faces and the partner of actor Brad Pitt, said that because of this gene, known as BRCA1, her doctors estimated she had an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer.

“Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimise the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy,” she wrote.

“I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex,” Jolie wrote.

She said that on April 27 she completed the three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved.

Jolie said her chances of developing breast cancer are now down to 5%.”


From the Jolie’s story above, What I want to share is that, now day there are many advances in medical and treatment.

 For those who have more cash, maybe no problem. But for those who income were limited, how to pay the cost.

Therefore I would like to suggest and encourage all of us to participate in Insurans (Islamic Insurans/Takaful). At least we still have way and hope……
