I was reminded of Angelina's decision today, after reading about Pierce Brosnan's daughter Charlotte. She died at 41 of ovarian cancer. Her mother (Pierce's first wife) died of the same disease at 43, and HER mother died of it at a young age as well.
If I were Charlotte's daughter, I'd get my eggs frozen and ovaries taken out at 30. I wouldn't risk it. With that family history, her body is a ticking time bomb. Early 40s is just way to young.
This is so sad. No child should lose their parent at such a young age, and no parent should ever bury their child.
