As soon as she found out that she had the breast cancer gene, Sharon decided to undergo a double mastectomy to remove any risk and live a free life. Incidentally she had suffered cancer a decade ago.

"For me, it wasn't a big decision, it was a no-brainer," she said. "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. I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It's not 'pity me', it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."
