Angelina Jolie such an inspirational and influential woman!

You don't have to have super powers to be a super hero, all you have to do is inspire and help people around you and Angelina has done both.Whilst going through her double mastectomy she was still handling her duties and travelling around the world doing her ambassador work like a champ.  The surgery, which began in February, had reduced Jolie's risk of breast cancer to less than 5%.Wow this woman is amazing!!

This is what she had to say:

"I can tell my children that they don't need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer," she wrote. "It is reassuring that they see nothing that makes them uncomfortable. They can see my small scars and that's it. Everything else is just Mommy, the same as she always was. And they know that I love them and will do anything to be with them as long as I can. On a personal note, I do not feel any less of a woman. I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity."

She went on to say: "I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer."
