Angelina Jolie just underwent a double mastectomy of her own, and now the Oscar-winning actress is mourning the loss of her beloved aunt, Debbie Martin, to breast cancer.

E! Online reports that Martin, the younger sister of Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, succumbed to a long battle with breast cancer yesterday (May 26).

Martin is survived by her husband and two sons. Martin’s husband Ron said that Jolie had both spoken with and seen the family numerous times since his wife’s diagnosis.

“Angelina has been in touch throughout the week and her brother Jamie has been with us, giving his support day by day,” Ron told E! News. “They both loved Debbie very much and although Angie is not able to come right now she has sent her love and support which was very nice.”

He added, “We have seen Angelina a number of times since Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer and Debbie and I were both very proud of her recent decision to have the double mastectomy and to do everything she can to keep her family from having to go through what we’ve been through. Angelina’s father Jon Voight has also been tremendously supportive — he came down to see Debbie last Sunday and spent the whole day, talking with her and sharing his love and I know Debbie really enjoyed seeing him and talking with him.”

Our thoughts are with Jolie and her family during this time.
