Sends a bad message to women! Let a doctor act as a fortune teller and scare you enough to make you rip you breasts off when you have no cancer watsoever. What ever happened to breast examinations? The genetic tests are overstated in some of the reports I read and are being used to control women and get at their pocket books. She is rich so the doctor told her something that might not even be true to gain a fortune of a celebrity. It is like saying I will never get in a car because I have a good possiblity of dying. What is the guarantee that the materials used for reconstruction don't cause cancer later on in her body? I mean if she was diagnosed with cancer that I could understand but she wasn't.
Do youself a Favor Go to School..Educate your Mind..And Stop saying THings you have No idea About..
