This makes me burst with pride for you all afresh. This really hard thing you have done (on so many levels: as a personal thing, a research thing, and a writing thing) is being heard and will truly help people understand and go forward with eyes wide open. <3

Angelina Jolie has her ovaries out to lower her high risk of ovarian cancer, a disease that kills more than 50% of women diagnosed. 

You can read more about Jolie's condition, including her impact on BRCA patients, in my book PANDORA'S DNA. The eBook version is on sale for $0.99 between today and Friday from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google, and Kobo.

Aw. It's probably because right now the book is only in US/Canadian release. Sorry 'bout that!

Broker Alex Hardy helped get us into an apartment we love on very short notice. We loved working with him because he listened to what we wanted and what we were willing to pay and showed us the best matches. We loved his no-pressure sales technique, and his willingness to listen to feedback. Whenever our current apartment outlives its usefulness, we'll be sure to call him again.
