Sharon Osbourne released a statement on Sunday informing people that she suffered a double mastectomy after she found out that she was in danger of developing breast cancer. The “America’s Got Talent” judge doesn’t feel sorry for the decision she has made because she realizes it might have prolonged her life, the Associated Press relates.
The 60-year-old English television show bluntly announced that she has decided to have a double mastectomy. It wasn’t easy to take this decision, but Ozzy Osbourne’s wife realized it was the best choice she had in order to prolong her life.
Sharon Osbourne was diagnosed with colon cancer almost a decade ago. In addition, she was recently told that she carries a gene which increases the risk of breast cancer, so it is best to take measures before anything bad happens. Given these circumstances, the “America’s Got Talent” judge didn’t have many options besides surgical intervention and she agreed to have a double mastectomy.
While other people refuse to make such drastic decisions, Sharon Osbourne managed to preserve her optimism in spite of everything. As a matter of fact, she told reporters that she doesn’t want to be pitied because it will all work out for her best. In her opinion, the decision she has made helped her get rid of some of the weight she was carrying around.
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, as well as their two children, Jack and Kelly became the most famous rock band after their reality TV show, “The Osbournes”, was broadcast on MTV. The members of the family have all got involved in various other television projects since the respective show. Sharon is now a judge on talent contests, whereas her daughter Kelly is a co-host at E!’s “Fashion Police”. Jack Osbourne would have loved to take part in the show “Stars Earn Stripes” but he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was forced to leave the program.
