So both Angelina and I are BRCA1 positive...cool huh? And my cute boss said to me after I told her my news, "This is probably the only time in your life that you will have something in common with Angelina Jolie."
Which is funny because I've had a bit of a girl crush on her for the longest time. And who wouldn't love some Brad Pitt. But as you may or may not have heard, she tested positive for BRCA1 and decided to go public about her recent Mastectomy and reconstruction. If you missed it, you can read more about it in her New York Times, "My Medical Choice."
So like any blogger or social media addict like myself, I turned to the internet and found some useful and not so useful information about being positive for BRCA1. Here are some I first found.
