Sharon Osbourne, has undergone a double mastectomy. The English television television host and wife of Ozzy Osbourne. The also ‘The X Factor and America’s Got Talent judge has done a preventive surgery over fears that she could develop breast cancer.
She had battled colon cancer back in the 2000‘s, and had been horrified when she had discovered she has a genetic mutation which raises her chances of developing the disease, so she decided to have surgery.
She tells Britain’s Hello! magazine,
”As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought:
’The odds are not in my favour’. I’ve had cancer before and I didn’t want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.”
The star went through a thirteen hour surgery and just wants to live a long and happy life with her family.
“For me, it wasn’t a big decision, it was a no-brainer. I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl.
“I didn’t even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It’s not ‘pity me’, it’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.”
