Just two weeks after she revealed how her family was cursed by the disease, Angelina Jolie's aunt is in a coma dying of cancer. Debbie Martin, 61, is seen by the actor as an "unsung heroine" behind the scenes of her decision to have a double mastectomy.

Jolie spent Friday waiting anxiously for news after doctors switched off Martin's life-support machine, the Mirror reported. Husband Ronald, who has been by Debbie's hospital bed since she collapsed at home on Wednesday, said she had a seizure and was taken to the hospital.
