Very brave of her to make that decision. I saw the news yesterday that a woman with the gene for breast cancer has an 85% chance of getting it. After mastectomy, her chances go down to 5%. Another statistic mentioned that 65% of women who have the gene opt for the "watch and wait" scenario.
I'd be one of the women who would have surgery very quickly if I had any inkling I would get breast cancer.
