Angelina Jolie has been known for her films, humanitarian efforts and even challenging Barack Obama on his policies. Most importantly, she has had to fight off cancer in her body.
She now needs your prayers as she and husband Brad Pitt are going through a serious time.
The Hollywood superstar had a procedure earlier this year in a bid to stave off the killer disease, but has pushed her body into early menopause — a crisis experts have warned can significantly increase the odds for early death!
Pitt was by his wife’s side every step of the way. “I’ll tell you this about her surgeries: Once the decision was made, she was on the operating table two weeks later,” he says, adding, “You have to understand that this is a woman who never knew she’d make it to 40. This is a woman who had watched her mother, aunt and grandmother become sick and eventually succumb, all at an early age. Her drive, her absolute value in herself, is defined by the impact she can have during her time here—for her kids and for the underprivileged and those suffering.”
There was, he said, “no vanity to my wife’s approach” to the surgery decision. “It was mature, it was an excitement to where, this is our life, we’re going to make the best of it. There’s a strength in that.”
