Sharon Osbourne Reveals She Underwent Preventative Double Mastectomy

Sharon Osbourne revealed to Hello! magazine that she recently underwent a double mastectomy after doctor's informed her that she was genetically predisposed to breast cancer.

"I've had cancer before, and I didn't want to live under that cloud... The odds are not in my favor. I decided to take everything off, and had a double mastectomy," she explained.

The reality TV matriarch bravely battled colon cancer a decade ago, and wanted to reduce the possibility that she would have to battle a life-threatening disease that could take her away from her family and beloved newborn granddaughter, Pearl.

"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," she added.

The news comes on the heels of son Jack's multiple sclerosis diagnosis earlier this year.

So brave Sharon!

Do you feel Sharon made the right decision?
