You don't think people look up to celebrities? If certain celebrities say it is so, then many people in our society believe them. Unfortunate, but true. Oprah anyone?

I can't even begin to imagine why anybody would care what Melissa Etheridge thinks, in particular Angelina Jolie.

I like to hear what ANYONE thinks, celebrity or otherwise. This is serious business and I think that hearing about people's experiences is helpful.

Comes from a long line of all fork hole pokers
I had the auburn haired Chrissy doll whose hair grew. She lost most of it in an incense fire. Don't ask

I don't really like AJ and certainly don't look to her as an example. However, I would have done the same thing she did. Simple math skills tell you that it's better to have a 5% chance of getting cancer than an 85% chance. If someone told me I had an 85% chance of getting cancer, hell yes, I would be fearful. And then, I'd try and figure out what I could do to minimize those odds.

Frankly, I'd take surgery odds over the odds I'd get from eating vegan, doing yoga and singing Kum Ba Yah. Because plenty of healthy living, positive thinking, dang near angels on earth get cancer.

I wouldn't classify AJ's decision as brave, but I do think it was wise, informed and the smartest thing to do. The woman has 6 kids to raise and would probably like to see them reach adulthood.
