“My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was. I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of” - My Medical Choice by Angelina Jolie, New York Times (14 May, 2013)
I graduated on Saturday. Moved to Boston Tuesday. Shot my first game Wednesday, and the rest is kind of a blur. This week I ate my first Fenway Frank, went behind the Green Monster and was even there to see David Ortiz surprise a Boston Marathon Bombing victim with a signed ball. I’m happy to say I’ve made it through my first week with the Red Sox. Quite a way to start my post-college career.
