Kelly Osbourne Reveals She May Remove Ovaries, Like Angelina Jolie

Kelly Osbourne just made a big revelation while discussing Angelina Jolie‘s recent surgery to remove her ovaries.

“I actually do have the cancer gene,” the 30-year-old TV personality shared on The Talk. “My mom made all of us get tested after she found out that she had it and got her double mastectomy.”

Kelly added, “I agree with this 100 percent. I know that one day I will eventually have to do it too because if I have children, I want to be there to bring them up. I want to be there to support them in every way I can.”

“It’s something I applaud Angelina for because she’s bringing attention to this, and people are now going to go out and get tested for it,” Kelly said. Watch the video below!

    Will she remove her colon to prevent from happening that colon cancer that her mother Sharon went through? Dumb uneducated spoiled brat.

    So gratifying to see such results.

    “A Nobel laureate could give the same message, and it might reach only a handful of people,” said David Fishman, director of the Mount Sinai Ovarian Cancer Risk Assessment Program in New York City. “Angelina is using her celebrity in a heroic way, and she’s going to reach millions of people worldwide.”

    Fishman estimates interest in genetic testing at Mount Sinai Hospital, one of New York’s largest medical centers, has nearly doubled since 2013.

    “Since then, every, single patient in my program has brought up Angelina Jolie,” said Fishman, whose program treats more than 2,000 women annually. “It takes a lot of courage for someone to be willing to share their private health care with the world. Her courage pushed a deeply sensitive issue into the spotlight.”

    A study published last year in Breast Cancer Research uncovered a similar burst in popularity overseas: Referrals to breast cancer clinics more than doubled in the United Kingdom after Jolie wrote about her first procedure.

    Researchers, who collected data from 21 major clinics, saw referrals increase 250 percent —peaking at 4,847 in summer 2013, compared to the previous year’s June and July numbers, which capped at 1,981. “All participating centers were conscious of a more significant increase in women attending referring to the Angelina Jolie story and further, noted women seen in the past seeking updated advice on testing and risk-reducing surgery,” study authors wrote.

    When I read on March 24 (Tuesday) the new Op-Ed of AJ, “Diary of a Surgery”, I was teary-eyed once again. I knew she would eventually undergo ovarian operation based on her previous Op-Ed, “My Medical Choice”& often wondered when she would do it. Now that she finally did it, I was still shocked but concerned with great admiration & much respect for her BRAVERY & SELFLESS public revelation about her medical condition in her pure intent of encouraging women to consider available options ONLY after careful research & series of medical consultations & tests/ examinations besides family & financial considerations.

    Bear in mind, the key important words/ phrases in her Op-Ed are:

    - useful information
    - stay calm & focused
    - what you live for and what matters
    - more than one way to deal with any health issue
    - not possible to remove ALL risk
    - expect some physical changes
    - a part of life
    - not easy to make decisions
    - possible to take control and tackle head-on any health issue
    - seek advice
    - learn about the options
    - make choices that are right for you personally

    She decided to share a very personal matter or information to the public NOT because she wanted controversy or to be talked about BUT rather in order to help other women through her experience somehow. She doesn’t need to be famous for this because she already is. She is AJ!!! She is not just famous but enormously famous. She just wanted for more discussion & possible positive results to further research & government support on women’s health issue.

    Every time she writes her Op-Ed, it has a great impact or effect on people. It surely starts discussion. The public just don’t read what she writes BUT really talk thoroughly what she is sharing & its related issues. It certainly creates debates & generates varied opinions. Mostly, people lauds her personal choice especially knowing that she has assessed her health condition with much care by seeking the advice of medical authorities. She is in constant consultations with her doctors before she came up with a major decision. So, AJ is just sending a message that only make a personal decision if armed with necessary, relevant information that goes with it.
