It’s no secret that breast cancer is one of the biggest threats to female health and wellness these days, and Sharon Osbourne wasn’t taking any chances after she found out she’s a carrier of the BRCA gene.
According to a report, the former “America’s Got Talent” judge immediately ordered a double mastectomy to eliminate the possibility that she could contract the disease.
Osbourne explained, “As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought, ‘The odds are not in my favor.’ I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me.”
“It’s not a ‘pity me’ [situation]. It’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight I was carrying around,” she added.
