A sad news just reaching us says that pop singer Anastacia has been diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease she once had in 2003.
She broke the news herself on her Facebook page, where she also announced that she has cancelled her April 6 tour, as her doctors have instructed her to cancel all performances and not to travel till further notice.
The I’m Outta Love singer expressed her heartbreak following the recent development, writing: ‘I feel so awful to be letting down all my amazing fans who were looking forward to ‘It’s A Man’s World Tour’. It just breaks my heart to disappoint them.’
The 44-year old was first diagnosed with the disease in 2003, when she went to her doctor for breast reduction. She then underwent surgery and was told she was in remission soon after. She had also had a string of serious illnesses like the incurable Crohn’s disease and supraventricular tachycardia, a heart condition.
Below is the full statement on her Facebook page:
‘Anastacia Forced To Cancel European Tour
Anastacia has sadly been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time after having successfully survived her 2003 battle with the disease. Consequently, she has been forced to cancel all performances, tours and any travel from now until further notice.
