    I feel ,as a cancer survivor myself it was very cowardly , "hero" and "strong" used to describe her is ridiculous. Getting a double mastectomy Just because you carry the gene is fixing something before its broken. I hate the saying but i holds true for this situation. How ridiculous would it be to start chemo before your diagnosed? , its all the same idea you don`t put a band aid before you get a cut. I could go on and on. But from someone who has been there, its completely absurd.

    yeah right: LESBIANS PLAY IT HARD!!


    As a medical student in the 1970's, I sought advice on behalf of my mother for her devastating family history of breast cancer. She declined the advice of a wise surgeon to have a double mastectomy, and died of breast cancer less than 5 years later at age 52. If, in the 1970's, someone with a high public profile like Angelina Jolie had helped to make the surgery an acceptable treatment, she would not have died. Melissa Etheridge's treatment for cancer does not make her an expert adviser to other women, and her illogical, factually incorrect comments are less than helpful to those who carry a breast cancer gene, and are faced with a decision that has the potential to save their life. The less we hear of her ill-considered opinions on any subject other than music, the better. I agree the word 'hero' is overused and devalued, but Angelina Jolie deserves our gratitude for being willing to help others by exposing a painful, personal decision to the world. I only hope that Melissa Etheridge's self-indulgent comments serve to highlight the value of what Angelina Jolie has done.
