After actress Angelina Jolie revealed she has undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her risk of breast cancer, some users of ITV News' Facebook page left the following comments:

She values her life more than her Hollywood image...good on her!! Very brave! They say hindsight is a wonderful thing, well she's had some and done something about it.
– Maureen Rutherford
What an example, a brave lady. Before this test was accessible my friend and her four sisters all died within a few years of each other from breast cancer. Hope her high profile helps others.

I know two ladies who have or had breast cancer. One with breast cancer awaiting operation, one who has had a successful operation and is now clear of cancer, thankfully. It is great that Angelina is raising awareness.
