The news that Angelina Jolie underwent a preventative double mastectomy is not one to be taken lightly.

The actress, mother and UN Ambassador penned an article for the New York Times revealing her journey from the initial operations to the reasons behind her decision to have the surgery in the first place.

While the lengthy process initially began on Feb. 2, Jolie made certain to remain an integral part of her and fiancé Brad Pitt's six children's lives throughout—and Jolie's nine-week journey was certainly a busy one, filled with humanitarian trips around the world and spending holidays with her family.
