I did not know that Sharon Osbourne, the wife and manager of Ozzy Osbourne, America's Got Talent judge and current co-host of ‘The Talk,’ revealed this week that she had a double mastectomy after learning she carried the breast cancer gene. I have never heard of having this done without a breast cancer diagnosis. Although, a decade ago, Sharon Osbourne was diagnosed with colon cancer, so she was intimately aware of what another battle would entail.

“I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl,"

Osbourne told British magazine Hello that she has been glowing over Pearl, her new granddaughter, born to son Jack in April. She has also said that she'll have no more plastic surgery do to her health scares and you can find out more about that here.

“It’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.”

We wish you well Sharon.
