Angelina Jolie made her first public appearance since announcing she had removed her ovaries and fallopian tubes to prevent cancer at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
Angelina Jolie, 39, attended the event with her daughters Zahara and Shiloh.
Last week, Angelina Jolie wrote in an op-ed in the New York Times: “Two years ago I wrote about my choice to have a preventive double mastectomy. A simple blood test had revealed that I carried a mutation in the BRCA1 gene. It gave me an estimated 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer. I lost my mother, grandmother and aunt to cancer.
“I promised to follow up with any information that could be useful, including about my next preventive surgery, the removal of my ovaries and fallopian tubes.”
Angelina Jolie went to see the surgeon who treated her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of ovarian cancer at age 56 in 2007, for additional tests.
