After double mastectomy, Jolie loses aunt to breast cancer

Updated: Monday, May 27, 2013 |
ESCONDIDO, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Less than two weeks after actress Angelina Jolie revealed that she had a double mastectomy to avoid getting breast cancer, her aunt has died from the disease.

Debbie Martin died Sunday at a hospital in Escondido, California.

She was 61 years old.

Martin's husband says she had the same defective cancer gene that Jolie has.

Martin was the sister of Jolie's mother, who died of ovarian cancer in 2007.
