Sheryl Crow Commends Angelina Jolie For Coming Forward

by Vanessa Ryan

Angelina Jolie went public last week with the news that she underwent a double mastectomy as a breast cancer preventative measure, and breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow applauds her decision to go come forward.

On Twitter Sheryl says, "I commend Angelina Jolie for her courage and thoughtfulness in sharing her story today regarding her mastectomy. So brave!" She added, "Ladies, please check out Angelina Jolie's story, especially if you have breast cancer in your family history."

Jolie chose to undergo the double mastectomy after learning that she's a carrier of the BRCA1 gene, which increases her chance of developing breast cancer to 87 percent.

Sheryl is currently climbing the Country charts with her sweet, new single "Easy".  Check out her new video below...
