On Tuesday evening, in response to the news that actress and activist Angelina Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning that she carried a mutation of the BRCA1 gene, which sharply increased her risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer, "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed back to the program Debbie Wasserman Schultz to share her own experience with both breast and ovarian cancer.
"It was like reading my own story and reliving my own decision," said Wasserman Schultz who tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation and opted to have both a double mastectomy and to have her ovaries removed. "It's not an easy decision to have your breasts removed and to force yourself into early menopause."
"To me, thinking about whether I would be there for my childrens' birthdays and graduations and important milestones, you know, I just didn't want there to be any questions."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview to hear Wasserman Schultz's courageous journey in her battle with cancer.
