First, Angelina, and now Anastacia.
Let's hope this is the last time she'll ever has to deal with cancer!!
The pop singer's response to being diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time was swift and decided — she got a double mastectomy to try and stop it from ever returning.
At 45, she's strong and young enough keep this thing beaten! Here's what she said in a statement:
'In light of Breast Cancer Awareness Month l wanted to take the opportunity to support a cause particularly close to my heart. l was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time earlier this year and am currently in the final stages of recovery after undergoing a double mastectomy.
'It has been an intense journey but l am feeling great and ready to start the next chapter. Breast Cancer Awareness Month gives all who are facing this disease a chance to gain strength and support from each other. Early detection has saved my life twice. I will continue to battle and lend my voice in anyway I can.'
We are SO happy that not only is she in the final stages of recovery, but also speaking up! Talking about things like this is the only way to help and reach those that need the support and inspiration!
She was first diagnosed in 2003 — and hopefully this year's diagnosis will be the last!
