Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt has said he fully supports his partner Angelina Jolie's decision to go public on having a double mastectomy. Brad Pitt says his wife's decision was "absolutely heroic", and that he wants her to have a "long and healthy life" with their family.
Ms. Jolie, 37, who declined to be interviewed for this article, was treated at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills, Calif., a clinic opened in 2009 by Dr. Kristi Funk, identified on its Web site as a former director of patient education at the breast center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
"I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer," she wrote Tuesday in a newspaper op-ed piece.
Her decision makes sense to others who've been there. We want to end the constant fear, and we don't want our children to suffer the same loss we have: By Anna Gorman
