Charlotte Brosnan was just 41 years old when she died over the weekend of ovarian cancer. Her mother died of the same disease while married to Pierce Brosnan. Charlotte's grandmother also died of ovarian cancer. Charlotte had been fighting the cancer for for several years and leaves behind a husband and two children, ages 14 and 8. So, with the family history of ovarian cancer, would she have lived if she had a hysterectomy at some point? Did Angelina Jolie ever go in for that surgery, because I know she said she was going to, but I have not really seen any sealed proclamations from her highness that she has.
