In less than two weeks after top  Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie told the world she  had a double mastectomy to avoid breast cancer. The deadly disease has claimed the life of her aunt, Debbie Martin. According to Sky News Debbie died of cancer in a hospital in a San Diego at the age of 61, as confirmed by her husband Ron Martin.

Mrs Martin was the younger sister of Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, whose own death from cancer in 2007 inspired the surgery that Jolie described in a May 14 article in The New York Times. According to her husband, Mrs Martin had the same defective BRCA1 gene that Jolie does, but did not know it until after her 2004 cancer diagnosis. He said that had his wife known in advance of her genetic risk “she would have done exactly what Angelina did”. 

Ladies, early detention can save us from this dealy disease. Let’s go for breast cancer screening today!
