Angelina Jolie’s public announcement of her preventive double mastectomy has been a major inspiration to women, prompting many to be screened for breast cancer and some to come forward about their own struggles.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards is the most recent celeb to speak up about breast cancer, announcing that she will be tested next week for the gene that causes the disease in many women.

“being tested next week,” Richards announced in response to a fan’s story of her breast cancer battle.

Last week, she revealed her family’s history of breast cancer on Twitter.

“I lost my Mom to Breast cancer & am embarrassed to admit that I've been too scared to get tested. I feel differently today #AngelinaJolie,” Richards posted on May 15.

The Bravo star and mother of four has not announced a date for her appointment, but fans have since been responding, urging her to get tested as soon as possible and wishing her well.
