Angelina Jolie has  revealed to the world that she had a voluntary double mastectomy to avoid breast cancer. After Jolie’s mom died from ovarian cancer at 56, the actress decided to get tested to find out if she carried the BRCA mutation. Testing revealed that she has  a 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer, and a 50 percent chance of developing ovarian cancer, which led her to decide to undergo a prophylactic double mastectomy. The brave actress isn’t the only celebrity to undergo a mastectomy. See which other celebs have had mastectomies below. –louvonia mcclain
